Giant things on Route 66 (photos)

Postby modmonilu » Thu Jul 27, 2006 7:13 pm

For all you lovers of giant-sized roadside attractions, here are a couple of photos from my day trip down Oklahoma's Route 66 yesterday.

The Blue Whale in Catoosa, OK ( I actually swam here as a kid.. you could slide down the fins and dive off the tail, but swimming is no longer allowed, as the original keepers have long since quit running the 'swimmin' hole'. Thankfully, it's still open to photographers, sightseers, etc.)

The World's Tallest Totem Pole.. errr.. make that 'The World's Tallest Concrete Totem Pole'. At 90 feet tall, it's still pretty impressive! About 4 miles off Route 66 (on 28A) in Foyil, OK. There are several other totems/ folk art pieces here, as well as a nifty little stand called the 'Fiddle Shop', which was built with the same totem theme.

I hope to get the chance to cover more of Route 66 soon, but next time I'll head west. Maybe find some nice googie signs..

I understand Bono's giant orange in Fontana, CA is about to be restored and reopened...

I love that big roadside stuff! Route 66 is so fascinating to me. I realy hope they get that Big Orange open again in Fontana. I also wish Tulsa the best with their investment into Route 66.
