Empowering Professionals: Wordless Wednesday - A Wild West Cattle Drive, on an Overpass?

Wordless Wednesday - A Wild West Cattle Drive, on an Overpass?

Wordless Wednesday - Cattle drive on an overpass????

Cattle Drive

This has to be the coolest overpass ever! 

Cattle Driveis

This picture was taken on an overpass traveling from Reno towards Carson City, then to South Lake Tahoe.  I snapped it with the same old Canon digital camera as I was driving.  It seems to be metal cut-outs or silhouettes, and seem to be on several overpasses in the area.  I am not sure of the history behind it, or why it was done.  Maybe it was done for MY pleasure?

Chris, I think it's great that cities are gettng creative.  It really does take stark freeway system to another, much more pleasurable, level.

Chris, We've encountered a couple of overpass decorations here and there, but I don't think any that elaborate!

I haven't been on that road in years.  Going to have to head that way just to see that.  Looks like something that could be on an overpass in Tracy.

My parents could have used one of those when they cut through their pasture to build a highway. For real!
