Tomato Head, and then trucked on to Wythville, VA for our first nights stay. That town was kind of a random pick. I knew we wouldn't make it all the way to Washington, DC that first night, also Wythville is the home of a giant pencil...
A perfect first stop for our trip! Over the course of 10 days we drove almost 2,700 miles. It was almost all beautiful though. We heard we missed the peak season for the leaves, but it was still gorgeous everywhere we went.Foamhenge. I have wanted to visit for YEARS! It was a little hard to find. We actually stopped at the Natural Bridge visitors center to ask. Travis was waiting to ask a volunteer when the man in front of him said, "I've already seen the natural bridge, is there anything else to do?" and she asked "Well, did you see Foamhenge?" Haha, perfect timing! He must not have been interested because we didn't see him once we got to the wonder.
Foamhenge is the work of artist Mark Cline, who is my kind of weirdo! You can read what he said to say about it at that link above.
There were a bunch of these great signs around: "I'm nuts enough to do it!"
his website. I'm so sad so many of them were lost to arson! If we had been in town that night, we would have totally taken his ghost tour!
I wanted to wander around back there so bad! See the big robot? And the T-Rex head!
Thankfully this beautiful tick monster is still outside the fence for photo ops.
I love a nut pun and a squirrel sign! And tons of fake cobwebs!Blue Nile Ethiopian. When I went to find their website it turns out they closed two days after we ate lunch there! Weird! They had a buffet and it was great!
There were some cute old buildings in Harrisonburg, I can never resist taking photos of old signs.
I would have loved to put this sign in the back of our rental car so I could mount it in our front yard.
