tipis, arrows + a giant beetle!

by Kaylah Stroup

I’m a huge fan of the Roadside America app, as you might have been able to tell since I mention it all the time. On this trip, I was constantly on it looking for things nearby. It seemed we were on the right route though because before I could even get directions to some of these places we just stumbled upon them. Most of the things pictured below were seen across Colorado, and Arizona.

Wigwam Village No. 6 – Holbrook, AZ

Giant Arrows – Mancos, CO

Tomahawk Indian Store – Lupton, AZ
Navajo Travel Center – Gallup, NM
Indian Rock Shop – Holbrook, AZ
May Natural History Museum – Colorado Springs, CO

Wigwam Village, the first photos in the this post, is one of the few things on the trip we had actually planned before we left. I’ve been wanting to stay at a Wigwam Village for SO long. There are three remaining Wigwam Motels in the US so when I saw there was one kind of out by where we were going to be, it became a necessity. The room was pretty small, definitely out of date but still clean. Such a fun road trip pit stop!

I’ve since visited the other two remaning Wigwam Villages. Read more about my stays – Cave City, KY + San Bernardino, CA
All of the photos above were taken with a Pentax k1000 and Fujifilm 35mm Superia X-TRA 400.
