Amarillo’s Cadillac Ranch

It would be a crime to visit Amarillo (and the Big Texan) and not make a stop at the amazing and inspirational Cadillac Ranch. Located just outside the city on I-40, Cadillac Ranch is a cow pasture, home to 10 old Cadillacs colorfully decorated by the public. The cars are in the ground nose-first, at the same angle as the Great Pyramid of Giza. Stella and I had looked for the weird and wacky stops to make on our road trip, and of course this one neared the top of the list.

I’m ashamed to say that we failed to bring spray paint to create our own lovely works of art on these Cadillac canvases. But, this isn’t to say we didn’t have fun!

We also saw one sign that is part of the Dynamite Museum (fake, and sometimes humorous, road signs in Amarillo that also have the same patron). I just wish we had seen more! Have you been to Cadillac Ranch? If so, what did you paint on the cars?
