Eyes on Route 66

Category: Sense of Place


Photo and caption by Mary Lou Fuller

We stopped for gas in Tucumcari, NM, and noticed this unfinished advertisement painted on a building across street from the gas station. Eyes reflect emotion, of course, and emotion attracts attention. But if that wasn't enough, there was even a traffic sign demanding that we stop and look at the wall. Never mind that this wasn't Winslow, AZ; we still got our kicks on Route 66.

Location: Tucucmcari, NM
