Elmer Long’s Bottle Tree Ranch

I am complete sucker for a roadside attraction. When I saw that we were within 40 miles of this ranch, I packed us a picnic lunch and off we went. This ranch is on historic Route 66 in Oro Grande, CA. Mr. Long inherited bottles that he and his father collected during their life. He came up with this display in early 2000 according to Atlas Obscura. Unfortunately, Mr. Long died in June of 2019. For now this place is open for all to enjoy. Please note there is a donation box in the middle of this wonderful free display.

Do you have a favorite roadside attraction? What is it?
