Cadillac Ranch

Late Friday, Teddy and I found ourselves in Amarillo, Texas, looking for the Cadillac Ranch, another attraction selected from Roadside America.

My copy of Roadside America dates to my previous drives across the country in 1992 and 1993. I used it to get directions to Cadillac Ranch. This turned out to me a mistake, as after a few miles on an unpaved road, I was calling around to find someone who could Google the location. Finally, my mother was able to tell me that the Ranch had been moved a couple of miles to the west.

After stopping at a truck stop to get further directions, I pulled off the side of the road (old Route 66), and went through a cattle gate on the side of the road, to the Cadillac Ranch, which is set a couple hundred feet off the road.

Fantastic. This is a much better henge than Stubby Stonehenge.
