Since this day was waaaay too big to take in one piece,
I give you…
Road Trip–Day 2B!
From Chimney Rock we packed our cute little selves up again and headed to our true destination. But first we still had to pass…
more corn fields…
and a million more trains. No, I’m not kidding.
These people are absolutely crazy about trains.
They LOVE them…
They want to MARRY them.
And if you’ve ever wondered where those sunflower seeds you eat actually come from…
ask us. We know.
At last, at last we see the sign that we’ve been searching all this time for!
Yes, my darlings here it is in all it’s glory!
CARHENGE!! In Alliance, Nebraska–some guy planted tons and tons of dead cars and wired them into the same configurations…
as Stonehenge…you know…the one in England…built by the Druids a million years ago.
Jillian is the only one of us who has actually seen the real thing…in real life. Even she was impressed.
The shorter folks were just thrilled to be turned loose in a big field and told to run.
What do you think? Crazy, huh?
Lyndi has wanted to go here since she was a pup. I guess all she had to do was marry a guy who was a good enough sport to actually take her there.
Some of the stacks looked precarious enough that they looked like they’d fall on our heads and squish us dead. But in reality–a place I don’t visit often–the cars are all carefully wired together.
I probably wouldn’t stand next to them in an earthquake, but they felt pretty solid to me.
Then there was a spooky old dinosaur made from spare parts. Ooooh looky. Dane’s sooo afraid.
Not me. I bring my own dinosaur with me wherever I go.
Ha! Go bald kid.
It was cool and amazing to look at and we never saw any Druids…
well, except this one.
Oh, and BTW– we did end up with a winner in the “Destination Quiz.”
my friend just told me about it from her last trip to omaha!
I’ll be sending you a marrrrvelous mug from Carhenge. Way to go!!
