Get someone to take your picture with this big guy - it's a novelty. Watch out you don't get pecked - he's got a REAL grouchy expression on his face!

As we had seen quite a few roadrunners on the road from Sanderson to Ft. Stockton this seemed to be just right image for the city.

It's a big 'ol statue of a roadrunner! It's in Fort Stockton! It's right up there with big balls of twine, Cadillacs half buried in the ground and big barns, just a slice of Americana that keeps the road trip cool!

We just had to stop by and get photo's with the giant roadrunner. It was impressive. We have been to Wawa Ontario and got photo's with their goose so we had to do the same here with the roadrunner.

When traveling on the I10 on the west end of Las Cruces is on of our favorite rest stops. Lots of space, clean restrooms and wonderful views. There are several sheltered picnic tables with grills close by. They are situated to take advantage of the view of the city and mountains. Having our pictures taken with the giant roadrunner art...

This is not the largest Roadrunner but it is well done and was probably the first. Las Cruces, New Mexico has a larger one on the south side of Interstate 10 that is made from recycled materials and can be seen from the freeway

Paisano Pete, an off-beat roadside attraction perfect for a selfie and one of the most recognizable roadside attractions in the southwest. At 22 feet long and 11 feet tall, he was the world's largest roadrunner until somebody in Las Cruces, New Mexico used junk from a landfill dump to build a roadrunner 20 feet tall and 40 feet long.

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.
