This is an incredible use of recycled materials, and super cool to see! Spend some time examining the roadrunner to see all the crazy things it's made of. Kitchen utensils, electronics, shoes, trophies, crutches, even a toy dinosaur and horse. My tech-loving 15 year old...More

If you're travelling into Las Cruces from El Paso on I-10, definitely plan to stop at this scenic overlook. Wide sweeping views of Las Cruces and a giant roadrunner sculpure made out of discarded materials. Really cool. Restrooms available as well.

The road runner goes hand in hand with New Mexico, but this road runner is made out of all sorts of unique things. Tennis shoes, tennis rackets, computer keyboards and the list goes on. A must see.

OK people, you are already driving down the 10, so you have to pull over for this picture. I used an amazing vintage filter to make the photos look like a snapshot from the 70s. Great photo op! And what a talented artist to use...More

The roadrunner is made from some of the most interesting recycled objects. It is a large bird and from afar you can't see the details that come alive when you get up close. Also the view of the Mesilla Valley from atop the west mesa...More

My husband and I stopped at this site after driving by and seeing it, we just had to stop and look. When you get closer to it you see that it is made up of shoes, old cell phones, etc, Really something to see.

This Roadrunner was created from items that were found and recycled. There are old crutches that help support his wings, headlights for eyes, and many other amazing things that were put into his creation. It is a well known attraction at the Rest Area on...More
