Do you know where I am?
Here's another hint...
Cadillac Ranch! Mr. H and I went to Cadillac Ranch the day of the wedding to kill some time. The ceremony wasn't until 7:30 so we fooled around most of the day and made a pit stop at the ranch.
Off historic Route 66 are 10 Cadillacs half buried nose down in a wheat field. They range in years from 1948-1963 and have been a roadside attraction since 1974.
Over the years they have been graffitied and are currently caked in paint inches deep mutating the original lines of the car. It's really neat to see but it's kind of sad too. It's like a graveyard of sorts for these old Caddy's.
In 2002, they restored the vehicles to their original colors but were eventually covered up again. One year later, in 2003, the Caddy's were painted black to represent the passing of one of the founding members of art installation.
More recently, the cars were painted yellow.
We were just there to check things out and to take pictures but there were 2 lovely ladies that handed us a can of spray paint and rubber gloves so Mr. H made his mark.
It's official, we're a part of Cadillac Ranch history. He wrote the boys names too but they didn't come out so clearly.
It was fun and I can't believe that I used to live in that part of the country and never made it there. I'm glad we were able to go together.
Peace and love,

Mr. H and I went to my aunt's (I almost typed funeral ha ha!) wedding last weekend. It was kind of an emotional time for me. I was sad, I was happy, I was mad, I was relieved. More on that later, but here are some photos from our 8 hour drive up there.
