Continuing northeast along Route 66 on our return leg of the road trip. After having some spray paint fun at the Cadillac Ranch, we decided that dragging half-empty (or even half full) cans of paint with us did not make sense and stopped at a similar opportunity to use them up. The Bug Ranch was just such an opportunity.

The wide views were impressive at first as one does not see cars buried nose first in the ground every day; at least in my neighborhood. After a while, the fully painted surfaces caught my attention for a close up abstract photography. There were just so many patterns to point at, some giving hints about the car theme, some not.
