Ten-Foot-Tall Green Aliens

There's only one road into Carlsbad Caverns and you have to drive right through White's City. If you look to your left as you're driving in you'll see a couple of ten-foot-tall wooden green aliens out in front of the White's City Trading Post. They seem totally out of place but, hey, weird is where you find it.

A possible historical connection: White's City Trading Post used to be home to the Million Dollar Museum -- one of its star exhibits (for us) was an alien baby.
