Career Day for Taggers

One of the most interesting things about traveling full time are the surprise of what we find fun and what we don’t. There are times when I can predict what our family will enjoy but then there are those days when I am surprised by how much we enjoy certain things.

We visited the Cadillac Ranch in Amarillo, Texas and it ended up being one of the funnest things we have done. Per Wikipedia:

Cadillac Ranch is not a ranch but a public art installation and sculpture in Amarillo, Texas, USA. It was created in 1974 by Chip Lord, Hudson Marquez and Doug Michels, who were a part of the art group Ant Farm. It consists of what were (when originally installed during 1974) either older running used or junk Cadillac automobiles, representing a number of evolutions of the car line (most notably the birth and death of the defining feature of mid twentieth century Cadillacs: the tailfins) from 1949 to 1963, half-buried nose-first in the ground, at an angle corresponding to that of the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt.[1]

We brought spray paint and we ended up having a great time. I guess our family are all taggers at heart because we ended up spray painting for a couple of hours. The cars are pretty cool and I like that they are always changing according to the whims of there visitors. There are parts where you can seriously see 4 or 5 inches thick of spray paint.

I liked so many of the pictures I took that I couldn’t leave any out. I hope you enjoy them.
