No, despite the signage, Elmer's Bottle Tree Ranch isn't in Barstow per se.
But it's on the way there. Specifically, it's in Oro Grande, just outside Victorville — about two hours or so from the Pacific Ocean along fabled Route 66.
Elmer Long is "an extremely gregarious fellow and is happy to share of himself, his history, and seems to genuinely enjoy meeting people stopping by from around the globe to walk around and experience his yard art." [Stickup Artist: "Oro Grande, Route 66"]
So sit back for a minute...
...stretch out your legs — and maybe even take a little drive.
And see what Elmer's gathered...
...along this storied highway.
