We stopped and visited Carhenge. It was interesting, though not much else to do but look. It is a short walk to the display. The visitor center was closed when we were there. We probably spent about 1/2 hour there. Get out and stretch the legs.

My wife and I visited Alliance on our way back from driving to California on old Rt 66 and returning for much of the way along old Rt 40. We detoured to view Carhenge both because we enjoy monumental sculpture and because we wanted to compare it to the iconic Cadillac Ranch in Amarillo. Both installations are interesting because of their settings, and each is unique. We really liked the whimsical faithfulness of Carhenge to its druidic inspiration. We also enjoyed seeing the other sculptures at the site constructed from autos and auto parts added by other artists and groups. This sight is worth a visit because of its humorous, high impact commentary on 20th century American culture.

Close to town and the highway, free, and marvelously quirky and whimsical. (I can't see a photo of the real Stonehenge without thinking about Carhenge.) Easy to find since it was well marked on highways. Might have been fun to have photos of it under construction.

Car Art - it's different. All gray and stacked. Since the beauty is in the eye of the beholder, some would think this place is fabulous, others, well…not so much. After 10 minutes we looked at each other and agreed, we had enough. I am glad we stopped, so at least now I can say we have been there.

If you think junk cars painted grey and buried in the ground is exciting this is the place for you but beware that is it--nothing more.
