Most folks know that everything is BIG in Texas. For our assignment today, I decided to show you some local attractions that a Texan’s point of view of BIG.
Cross of Groom, about 45 miles east of Amarillo, TX, is a 190-foot (58 m) tall free-standing cross. Drivers on Interstate 40 can see this big structure from 20 miles (32km) in either direction.
The Big Texan Steak Ranch, home of the free 72-oz steak, is on the east side of Amarillo, TX on Interstate 40. That’s right, if you can eat this BIG 4 1/2 pound steak and all the Texas sized fixins in one hour, it is free.
Not to be out done by the Cadillac Ranch, where 10 Cadillacs are planted nose-first in the ground west of Amarillo, or the Slug Bug Farm, where 5 Volkswagen Beetles are planted nose-first in the ground east of Amarillo, this farmer went BIG and planted 14 combine harvesters nose-first in the ground to create Combine City.
Did you notice the bright blue sky in these photos? That is what we Texans like to call BIG Sky. I know Montana also claims the BIG Sky moniker. BIG Sky refers to wide open sky.
Thanks for stopping by, y’all come back now.
