Visitor Tips and News About Tee Pee Curios on Route 66
Reminiscent of days gone by, when youngsters would beg Dad to stop at the tee pee for a coonskin cap or colorful chief headdress. Heidi the new owner is very friendly. A great photo op for the family.[Ken, 10/13/2013]
It's not the only teepee on Route 66, but this neat little building fused onto a concrete wigwam is part of Tucumcari's continuum of retro-photo opportunities.
We can scarcely imagine how many have said: "My tee pee photo came out awesome! I must journey the length of Route 66 and capture it in ironic-yet-beautiful images. For my coffee table book!"
