Oro Grande, California

In Oro Grande, California is the Bottle Ranch, and although it is basically what you imagined, you will never fully feel the greatness of this ranch until you visit. Although a popular spot on Route 66, it is not an official business or museum. Owned by a man named Elmer, it is said you can stop by as long as the gates are open. If you do, make sure to say hey to Elmer, since this is his home you are walking in. Once you get inside the gate, you will most likely want to hug Elmer. Inside is full of pipes and other structures that have tons of bottles hanging from them. Glass bottles decorate the ground as light reflects, creating a beautiful colorful set of “trees” you will never find anywhere else.
