2016 MEA # 10: Seen Along The Way

Here it is……the last of the Most Excellent Adventure posts…..the one that focuses on all the cool stuff we saw along the way! Americana at its best! We saw so much at our stops, but sometimes, the things we saw in between were the real gems! So…..these are photos of just odd things that caught my eye – the usual, the unusual, the quirky, and the quaint! I apologize for the quality of the photos in this post…..most were taken out the window of the motor home as it was rolling along the various interstates at 70+ mph (depending on the state’s speed limit at the time). Unfortunately, many of the cool things I photographed aren’t included because the photo was so blurry it was unrecognizable or I thought I got it, but by the time I clicked the button it was too late! LOL AND….I’m not going to even try to remember where I saw some of the stuff (although, I do remember some cause it was more obvious)…..just know that it was somewhere along the way in one of the 21 states we passed through!

Anyway – here are some examples of great American roadside art!

    • Depends if you’re talking about the corn that grows in the field or the kind that shows up on TV shows like Hee Haw! LOL
