  • Leave L.A. by highway to not lose too much time, and when the road 66 before Oro Grande, to Victorville. The place is easy to find on the National Trail Highway. Dozens "of trees" made of bottles, and other surprises, picked up by Elmer along route 66. Walk to eyes wide open, for a few dollars left in the box. There was no one this Sunday of July

  • A must see on the way to Vegas from LA! So interesting and quirky. Great to have a look around and take pics. Would love to have met the artists but no joy this time  more »
  • This place is amazing. Found it by accident years ago. My daughter was so impressed that when we visited California again, she insisted on taking her new husband there. You must take a detour to go th...  more »
  • This is must see on the way to Vegas. You can come off the main highway and travel along the old Route 66 for a little bit and then visit Elmer's Ranch. It must have taken Elmer years to collect and put together his display but it is a really cool place to stop off at and take pictures. I would have taken around 200 pictures here. It is free to go in but it is suggested that you leave a tip and I think it is worth the tip - we tipped $20 so $10 each for the 2 of us but it is up to you what you tip.
  • I was there this past weekend and I just loved it. So interesting and makes for great photo opportunities! Went there with two school-age kids and they were absolutely fascinated with many of the vintage items. One of those kids was a very active 6 year old -- which is a bit nerve wracking, since there is plenty of stuff to get hurt on. Watch your kids. Elmer came out and said hi, and we had a brief but friendly conversation. I highly recommend a stop here if you are into unique, vintage, upcycled artsy type stuff.
  • Original and unique place over the 66. It is a curious place, like an orchard where bottles looks to had grown up. And it is bigger than I expected, placed in a section of the 66 where there are a lot of paints of its logo in the road, very enjoyable.
  • A yard full of random stuff and decorated with bottles. Weird but beautiful. Definitely worth a stop if you're driving by.
  • This place is great! I will be bringing the kids again, maybe it'll be cooler in the winter and we can have a sandwich. There's so many things to look at and have the kids point out that they find.
