This is a sculpture of a dinosaur bone that was found in New Mexico.
This is the welcome center to New Mexico on I-40. We stopped here to pick up a new state map and to take a break. We got a cup of coffee in one of those tiny styrofoam cups that was just enough coffee to make one want more coffee, about two sips.
New Mexico spends a lot of money on landscaping and decorating their overpasses. They are very pretty and just add some class to an otherwise routine traffic device.
