Cadillac Ranch off Route 66 is a public art installation and sculpture in Amarillo, Texas, USA. It was created in 1974 by Chip Lord, Hudson Marquez and Doug Michels, who were a part of the art group Ant Farm. It consists of what were (when originally installed during 1974) either older running used or junk Cadillac automobiles, representing a number of evolutions of the car line (most notably the birth and death of the defining feature of mid twentieth century Cadillacs: the tailfins) from 1949 to 1963, half-buried nose-first in the ground, at an angle purportedly corresponding to that of the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt.
Just west of the Amarillo city line. I-40 exit 60. Follow the frontage road on the south side of I-40 (old Route 66) east for one mile. Cadillac Ranch will be on the right (south) side; just park your car along the shoulder and enter the pasture through an unlocked gate.
Antelope Canyon is a slot canyon in the American Southwest. It is on Navajo land east of Page, Arizona. Antelope Canyon includes two separate, scenic slot canyon sections, referred to individually as “Upper Antelope Canyon” or “The Crack”; and “Antelope Canyon” or “The Corkscrew”.
The Navajo name for Upper Antelope Canyon is Tsé bighánílíní, which means ‘the place where water runs through rocks’. Lower Antelope Canyon is Hazdistazí (called “Hasdestwazi” by the Navajo Parks and Recreation Department), or ‘spiral rock arches’. Both are in the LeChee Chapter of the Navajo Nation.
Whilst planning our road trip across America from the comforts of home in Scotland I came across this website titled “29 Surreal Places In America You Need To Visit Before You Die”. On that list one of the locations that looked cool was Carlsbad Caverns in New Mexico. Very interesting place you can take the lift down as it’s some 700+ft to the caverns below and very alien landscape much like how the old Martian/Alien films were depicted when I was a kid and took me back when I watched the original movie of “Journey to the centre of the Earth” as this was one of the filming locations.
We don’t see many Harley Davidson’s in England, a few but not many. As you can expect plenty of them in America and not many of the other bikes we see lots of in England. This was just a handheld shot I took walking around Galveston in Texas.
