Route 66: Elmer's Bottle Tree Ranch

No, despite the signage, Elmer's Bottle Tree Ranch isn't in Barstow per se.

But it's on the way there. Specifically, it's in Oro Grande, just outside Victorville — about two hours or so from the Pacific Ocean along fabled Route 66.

Elmer Long is "an extremely gregarious fellow and is happy to share of himself, his history, and seems to genuinely enjoy meeting people stopping by from around the globe to walk around and experience his yard art." [Stickup Artist: "Oro Grande, Route 66"]

So sit back for a minute...

...stretch out your legs — and maybe even take a little drive.

And see what Elmer's gathered...

...and composed

...along this storied highway.









The Peak of Fall

Is it ever any wonder what we have to be thankful for?

Is it a grape leaf at the top of Atlas Peak?

Or a maple tree at Rocky Creek?

It's just all so sweet this time of year.

A time to reflect on the beauty around us and the ones we love.

We give thanks!


Wallace Stevens: "The Planet on the Table"

The Planet on the Table

Ariel was glad he had written his poems.
They were of a remembered time
Or of something seen that he liked.

Other makings of the sun
Were waste and welter
And the ripe shrub writhed.

His self and the sun were one
And his poems, although makings of his self,
Were no less makings of the sun.

It was not important that they survive.
What mattered was that they should bear
Some lineament or character,

Some affluence, if only half-perceived,
In the poverty of their words,
Of the planet of which they were part.
