Geo-RoadTrip 2014: Cartago

Cartago, CA is a little ghost town that takes very little time to drive through, which is fine since there is very little to see there.  But what is there is definitely worth a stop.  The mysterious orange building  along the highway is a roadside work of art made complete with a dinosaur skeleton statue:

Legend has it that this was originally meant to be a beef jerky store but the other jerky store down the road didn't seem to have a lot of details.  It's worth noting that the creepily non-abandoned motel next to it has a giant metal ant on the roof.  The artist remains unknown.  

After that quick stop, we got back on the road...more pics tomorrow!
