Welcome to the "world's most endearingly crummy mini-golf course," complete with bizarre looking images. Yes, this is Peter Pan Putt Putt in Austin, TX.

To the far left is a dino that looks straight out of a first grade paper mache class. At least the glue was dried on this one.

To the near left is a goofy head that is full of fun and games. Well, at least when he talks to you when no one's looking. Check out the big red nose on this face.

(Near right) Here's a close-up of the mini-golf dino. Though he's missing a few teeth now, the grin is still very enchanting.

(Far right) Speaking of enchanting, now the Peter Pan figure himself... well he looks a bit strange, especially at night.

 

 

Cadillac Ranch

The Cadillac Ranch in Amarillo, TX is the brainchild of Stanley Marsh 3, a Texas millionaire. Various years of vintage Cadillac were dug into the earth, nose down as a Route 66 and roadside sculpture of sorts. In the late 1990's, the cars were dug up and moved a couple of miles west to escape ever encroaching city of Amarillo. 10-05

 

UPDATE 05/05 : See more photos and information about Cadillac Ranch at Roadside Peek's Spotlight on the Cadillac Ranch. 05-09

Here's the Bug Ranch, located in Conway, TX. Appearing to be set in the same vein as the Cadillac Ranch, the Bug Ranch is composed of 5 VW Bugs driven into the ground (literally) and is located just east of Amarillo. 02-07

Looking a bit like Clines Corner, which is off Route 66 in New Mexico, Carl's Corner is made up pretty much of a truck stop. Check out the two strange characters waving off the top of the truck. 02-07
