There's a frontage road that you can take from the highway and it allows you to get a clear photo. It was much more visible than the earlier tip made it sound.

Hard to see from the road, but that is as close as you can get.

Norwood Sculptures: The Cavalry

When on Route 10 on the west side of the state you drive for hours and there is nothing but majestic mountains. Then you get to a small town called Ft. Stockton and out in the grasses you will see metal sculptures that jump out of history. Indians on horseback, or the cavalry riding back into town -- nostalgic and heartwarming. Great to break up the drive.
