Well, obviously to get from here to there–from New Mexico to the east coast to visit relatives.

Or, to be on the road, to have fun. But what kind of fun?

And, to eat.

The themes of fun on this trip are several, including

archeological mounds
outsider/visionary/roadside art
Civil War sites

and, serendipity…

These photos are of the MINDFIELD CEMETERY–it’s about the size of an electrical station. It looms high over Brownsville, TN.

It is the work of one man, Billy Tripp, who is still building it.

Next to it, is a very nice restaurant–The Mindfield Cafe. It’s sort of like a museum restaurant in a crazed outsider art setting.

Kind of like Watts Towers. Kind of like…nothing else.
