The Legendary Road Mural
Tucumcari, New Mexico

I stopped in Tucumcari and took pictures of the murals along Route 66 … some pretty cool stuff. This man (pictured at left) stopped and chatted, He told us that he is in one of the town’s many murals. I learned from him, and from two other ladies, that the artists featured many local folks in their work.
Most of Tucumcari’s murals were created by the husband and wife team of Sharon and Doug Quarles. This mural is The Legendary Road and it measures a whopping 14 feet x 114 feet!!!! I love that Suzanne took detailed pics of different segments of the mural — some are included in the animated gif below and the others are in the gallery at the end of this post.
