Yeah, I kind of thought that about the trucks too, but I was compelled to turn around, stop & shoot them!

Here's one that found me, I was stopped at a light in Tucson and this pulled up in the turn lane next to me - camera phones are great for taking pics like this!

Cool planter trucks, Dave. Even women would like those...although maybe not in the yard.

Ray; when your comment hit my email I was afraid you mean the outhouse. :o

The old Middlegate P.E. station now has a bar, restaurant, and some questionable lodging. It's every bit as craggy and old school as it gets, but they have some GREAT food there. They start preparing prime rib in the late afternoon that is to die for. Then, you can head south to Gabbs and hit the bar and play cards at the local VFW hall. Talk about living in the past. ;)

I like those trucks with all the flowers, Dave. I've been trying to convince Marcia to let me put a bathtub & toilet in the yard and fill them with flowers. She always says no. I'm going to show her your pics and hope for the best.

Here's a world famous roadside attraction that was there for decades....until some asswipes cut it down. Unfathomable, but a sad, sick truth. The Shoe Tree, US 50, about 40 miles east of Fallon:

From the dearth of bottomless Death Valley:

Posted ImageHosted on Fotki

To the tops of the Siera Nevada Mountains. The thin horizontal line you see along the mountainside is the snow tunnels the trains run through all year since the turn of the 20th century. They had to change the configuration of many of the big steam engines to cab forward because of the choking fumes in the miles-long tunnels.

Posted ImageHosted on Fotki

A little closer. These re build of wood beams and heavty boards. In some places the trains go both directions inside the tunnels (sheds). Signal maintenance crews used to live in converted baggage cars along the route, and in the winter they were "sided" INSIDE the tunnels with the trains flying by them day and night.
