Crossing TX in a daySunday, May 2nd, 2010 – Have you ever crossed TX East to West in one day? Well, depends where you are – it is possible. We were at the square top of the state, on the route (close to Route 40) and this path alone tool us the whole day.
Some of the towns in TX have created Museums and tributes to the route, even a Barbed wire museum – imagine that. There are so many places to mention and so many pictures to show, that I really don’t know where to start, or better yet – when to stop :)
This is a small collection of the pictures I took in TX.
The biggest Cross and a Leaning TowerIn one of the towns on the way, Britten, TX we found the Pisa tower of TX. They built their water tower leaning intentionally to attract tourist, and it looks like they are succeeding as people are are stopping by and taking pictures. But this is not the main attraction of this town. They have built a HUGE cross with sculpture and spiritual center. Many people have stopped there and appreciated the size of the cross and the beauty of the sculpture garden. To have the full impact of that experience one must actually be there. Look at Patti by the cross. Amazing, isn’t it?
Buggies and CadillacIf that is not enough, we have gone through two odd locations – The Beatle garden – 7 Beatles stuck in the ground nose down painted in all the rainbow colors, and the Cadillac Farm – 10 models of this famous car – one from each year (I thing the last was 74 but not sure) cemented forever in the middle of a farm field.
