20 Feet Tall Junk Roadrunner

Saves: 57
Check-ins: 37
This 40-foot long, 20-foot tall giant junk (recycled) roadrunner has been a Las Cruces landmark since artist Olin Calk built it in 1993. The Roadrunner was retooled and rebuilt a number of times - once after it stood at a landfill for a few years and another time after it stood at a rest stop. Now it's back at the rest stop but it's standing on top of a rock, and, yes, it was Olin who refitted the roadrunner with new (old) scrap metal all those times! (Photo by Natalie Patino)
