Awesome intersection of art

The roadrunner has always been a favorite cartoon character of mine. I was very surprised to discover how small they really were in relation to the coyote. On the adjacent corner... read more

Not a big deal -- but close to fort Stockton and visitors center so stop and get a quick self-ie you'll be the envy of all when you post it on Facebook.

The roadrunner has always been a favorite cartoon character of mine. I was very surprised to discover how small they really were in relation to the coyote. On the adjacent corner there are metal sculptures of horses and cattlemen. Love the drive thru bottle shop too.

Staying overnight in Fort Stockton, without a whole lot else see in town, we just had to take the kids to see Paisano Pete which at 11 feet (3.35m) tall and 22 feet (6.7m) long was the “Largest Roadrunner in the World” when it was erected in 1980 and now the second largest since 2002. Located in a traffic island... More

We decided to stop and take a picture since we needed gas. It's a great little spot to stop and take a picture. This statue is on the left is you are driving west. It took about 5 minutes to just do something fun. I mean where else are you going to find a roadrunner this big in Texas.

Despite people saying it's easy to find, we couldn't find it! We ended up at the visitor centre and enquired there. They pointed out that "Paisano Pete" was diagonally opposite. He is situated on a small "island" at a busy intersection, so we parked up a street away and walked back. it's a fun thing.

Our visit to Ft. Stockton, was very interesting. Lots of history to discover about this area. Be sure to check out the Visitor Center and the beautiful Caboose on the train tracks right next to the Visitor Center.
