Amarillo, Texas: Cadillac Ranch

Is it just a line of ten junker Cadillacs buried nose-down in a dusty farm field -- or is it art?

I liked what someone did with the used paint cans.

All we are saying, is Give Our Cadillac Ranch Spray Paint Art a Chance. (impromptu spray can display was temporary -- Joyce's pic is dated Jan. 2012)

It had rained all night before the day we visited. Walked through nearly ankle deep mud to reach the cars. Couldn't get close enough to touch them without needing a life jacket. Thousands of discarded spray paint cans laying all over the ground. Wish people would be more respectful and take their trash with them.

Cadillac Ranch is a little bit trashy, but we're glad we stopped.

Nice little stop; there are normally abandoned spray paint cans here and there for you to add your own flair.

Very interesting and a fun excursion for the family.

Cadillac Ranch continues to be a popular stop along I-40, but in some photos we've noticed how poorly the muddy field drains. Tipster "Hutch" just wrote in with another perspective: "Nothing like picture [in app]. All covered in graffiti. Paint cans all over the place. They were cool when I was a kid now they look terrible."
