We were so excited on our drive to the pottery village of Mata Ortiz 
when we saw this turtle on the road!

Upon closer inspection....

a turn of the century hacienda that is undergoing renovation.

It was explained that the bricklayers would leave symbols on the bricks they placed and were payed accordingly after they were counted.

Wish we could have driven this truck home!


  1. Ah ~ the rare Goodyear rubber desert tortoise. Great find, Kim! I've got $1 that says that truck wouldn't get you home to Arizona, much less Alaska.

  2. Wonderful photos Kim ... love the turtle and the car is the stuff of dreams! Thanks for the encouraging words you left for me. Pen x

  3. oh I am laughing so hard at the eyes are so bad that I would have done the same thing.

  4. That car looks like something an old hippie might drive.

  5. What is it about old trucks, I too stopped to photograph an old truck out in Kansas. Both of them were sandblasted to a beautiful patina.
    Nice shot.

  6. Wowza, I want that truck too, love, love those old trucks!!!!! Daveed looks pretty darn cute hanging in that doorway. xox Corrine
