Fraggle Rock

I was driving from New Mexico to Arizona and saw this just off the highway. It looks like it was hand-painted, representing the 1990s (Fraggle Rock). To get closer, take I-10 exit 15 and go north. Fun to see!

The Fraggle Rock TV show ended its original run in 1987. But it's been in syndication ever since, and has been on this rock outcropping since at least 2004.

Stay awake and quick, look, at the modern day hieroglyphics (otherwise known as graffiti) on the left side of the road as you go east.

As I was driving back from a long road trip to California, I stopped to get a few snapshots of this rock. I didn't wanna get out, as I heard that there were snakes around the place.

Fraggle Rock

I stopped in town and asked 5 people the whereabouts of this great landmark, and all but one denied the very existence of Fraggle Rock. The one that did admit it was real gave me wrong directions. I say shame on you Lordsburg! Embrace your fraggleness!!!
