distanceWhen we first arrived in Las Cruces, the huge Roadrunner at the rest area looking over the city from the west seemed like a major symbol for the city.  After a few years he had to be taken away for maintenance.  He is made entirely of old “stuff” and pieces were coming loose.

close upWhile he was under repair there was a great deal of discussion about where he should be re-installed.

sideWe were pleased to see, on our first trip west in some time last week, that the original site won out.  He looks very grand there, and very perky.rearThe giant roadrunner has his eye on the city once again.
