Still confused? The name of this automotive sculpture is The FORD Seasons. And, yes, those are Fords.
What may still not be clear is that the cars represent the seasons of wheat growing.
- Green - Spring: the wheat is planted.
- Gold - Summer: the wheat is growing. (Notice that this part requires two cars to show how much the wheat has grown.)
- Pink - Autumn: the wheat is harvested.
- White - Winter: the field is empty, waiting for spring and planting season to return.
I'll admit that none of that was particularly apparent to me at first glance, but even without the explanation, I smiled when I saw this part of Carhenge.
I hope you've enjoyed this month's trips to Alliance, Nebraska, and that you'll come back next week for a new post.

The artist who designed this one, however, took a more humorous approach and put the hoops that would traditionally be covered with canvas on top of an abandoned station wagon.
Where do you find this oddity? At Carhenge.

You may have noted that the title says Wednesday NEAR Wyoming rather than Wednesday IN Wyoming. That's because we're heading to Alliance, Nebraska and Carhenge.
As you can tell from both the name and the picture, it's an attempt to recreate Stonehenge using cars rather than stones.
Did it make you smile? I certainly smiled when I first saw it.
