It was a long, hot drive from Phoenix back home in August. The one thing we look forward to (other than safely making it home) is the Las Cruces Roadrunner. He is poised for take-off at the IH 10 East rest stop, just before Las Cruces, New Mexico.
He was made from totally recycled items from the old Las Cruces city dump when it closed about 8 years ago. I really wanted Susan to take more pictures, including one of me standing under him. His chest is way over my head so that picture would have given you a better idea of his size (about 20 feet high). But she balked and headed back for the car, muttering something about the warning fence we stepped over to get closer to him, something about the sign saying "Beware of Snakes."
You can get an idea of his size from the last picture which shows what his chest is made up of. Nice job of recycling!
