Roadside Cowboys (far)

These two cowboys on the side of an empty road in rural New Mexico was by far one of the most unusual things we’ve ever encountered on a road trip! From a far, we actually thought they were real people…but when we got closer, it was pretty clear that these were unique pieces of art. Now based on our research, these two arguing cowboys that stand 18 feet tall were created by California artist John Cerney who has some other amazing roadside murals which you can view here. In fact, we are super interested in checking out his mural near Roswell, New Mexico which involves aliens!
