Coming down from Santa Fe headed to Amarillo, TX we had only two stops in mind- Cadillac Ranch and Beetle Ranch…As soon as Hagrid heard both stops involved cars he was on board! Sitting in the middle of a field just off 40 the long standing art installation was a little bit worn but still impressive in a desolate sort of way. We did run into a young man who was traveling across country with his Waldo statue and he was eager to pose with Hagrid.
Just a few miles up the road there is a “copy-cat” installation- Bug Ranch- which is a scaled down version of Cadillac ranch using VW Beetles instead. Also weathered, worn, and spray painted Hagrid once again grabbed the opportunity to be in the “driver’s seat”.
