Wednesday Near Wyoming -- April 11, 2018

Did you notice that today's post has a different name? That's because I thought you might like a bit of a change, so this month I'm going to feature special places near  but not in Wyoming.

Today's destination is just outside of Alliance, Nebraska. If you don't have a map at hand, let me tell you that Alliance is in the northwestern part of the state, what is commonly referred to as the Panhandle.

What is it? Carhenge. You read that right: Carhenge. Yes, this is a replica of the famous Stonehenge, only it's made of old cars, all spray painted gray. And, like the British monument that inspired it, the summer solstice played a part in its history. Carhenge was dedicated on the summer solstice in June 1987.

As their website says, it's FUN, and don't we all need more fun in our lives?
