Giant Geococcyx Glee!

We've stopped here on nearly every trip along I-10 in Texas. The F.A.S.T.-fabricated birdy behemoth is a great mascot for the town and a first-class photo opportunity.

The statue was easy to find (Dickinson St.-business I-10) and Main. but crossing the busy street was a little worrisome since there were no crosswalks or pedestrian traffic signal. We just had to run when there was a break in the traffic flow. I would be concerned if I had small children or a stroller with me. The statue is... More

Every time we take a trip, we always seem to find these World's Largest _______. Finding the worlds largest roadrunner was amazing. As it turns out, This roadrunner was the world's largest until 2002 when it was replace by another road runner in NM.

We try to stop in for a photo-op every time we stop for gas and eats in Fort Stockton. The best parking is across the road to the southeast in a gravel lot. Watch out for the light traffic when crossing the road with little children. It's right along the main street in a triangle of roads. Paisano Pete is... More

The giant roadrunner is a must for photo op when you are in the area. While there, go across the street to the visitor center where you will find some great displays about the area's role in the energy industry and regional history.

This huge road runner is an eye catcher and a great photo opportunity. The road runner is easy to spot on the east end of town when traveling towards the I10. He sits on the right hand side and makes for a fun photo and a nice place to stretch your legs.

This is a hoot! Paisano Pete stands guard over the area and you have to give the town elders credit for having this idea. The Runner will always be in my mind when I think of Fort S.

Saw it mentioned in a magazine and knew we had to go and get our picture with the road runner. It was very easy to find. Nobody was there taking pics so we had it to ourselves. The statue did not disappoint us. Glad we did it!

Considering there is almost nothing else to do in Fort Stockton, this was an interesting distraction. Stood by it for pictures and it was very stinky, don't want to mention what the smell was, but it wasn't good.
