Do you believe in extraterrestrials? Check out our latest blog post on visiting The Very Large Array (link in bio)!
So John loves talking about cryptids (bigfoot, yeti, sasquatch, etc.) and wants to believe all of that stuff is true. He also LOVES talking about aliens, and he’s convinced that there is extraterrestrial life out there somewhere 👽
Me? I want to believe. But I’m also the kind of person that has to see wildlife up close or it doesn’t count. When it comes to extraterrestrials, I’m in “wait and see” mode. If and when I encounter one, my mind will certainly be changed. Or at least closer to being changed.
However, I’m pretty sure John could mistake a weather balloon (or airplane) for a flying saucer and be convinced for the rest of his life that he discovered aliens. He gets real riled up about that kind of stuff. So if John does manage to capture photographic evidence of a UFO, maybe take it with a grain of salt. His glasses are pretty thick. And he is color blind. At least he’s passionate about it. #backpacksandroadmaps
This little side of the road Colorado junk stop was “open all year” with an ATM on the porch and a hole cut in the door that said “pay here”. It was the sort of place that looked like maybe they would kidnap you if you broke the honor system. 😂 #shady#roadsideattraction#junk#hunting
When we were in Waco a couple weeks ago, we stumbled upon this awesome refurbished Gulf gas station which was originally built in 1929! Turns out it isn’t an operational station, but it was fixed up by two brothers from Waco who love vintage cars. They wanted a place to work on their cars, and also wanted to save a little piece of history. We’re so grateful that there are people in the world who value things like this and fix them up for all to enjoy! Can you believe this place is 90 years old?! 🧡⛽️
Found this field near the Carrizo Plain Monument not far from Soda Lake. California's full of wonders this time of year. With all the rains flowers have popped up whenever grasses don't choke them out.
The World's Largest Pistachio, McGinn's PistachioLand, along U.S. 54 between Alamogordo and Tularosa, NM "There are plenty of large, man-made oddities that people can find throughout the world. There's the world's largest baked potato in Blackfoot, Idaho, the world's biggest buffalo in Jamestown, N.D., a larger-than-life hockey stick and puck in Duncan, British Columbia, and a mammoth lobster in Shediac, New Brunswick. Now you can add the World's Largest Pistachio in Otero County to the list." - JournalGazette.net
