Route 66 and Tow Tater

So we had a good time here.  We stayed the night in Joplin, MO because we kind of got stranded with the tornado warnings.  The weather warning voice came on the radio and said anyone on the highway-GET OFF NOW!  So we did.  
I read that "Tow Tater" was the inspiration for Tow Mater on the movie Cars so of course we had to go off the beaten path to see it for ourselves.  This was Thanksgiving morning so of course they were closed.  He lives out in Galena, Kansas.  

Cool old time gas pumps!

There is literally nothing else around this shop but having that tow truck sure brought in tourists (we are such geeks and proud of it!).

Couldn't believe how beautiful this was on our drive.  Not sure exactly where this was but it is breathtaking!

I'm not sure if this is the biggest cross or not but it sure seemed like it.  HUGE!  Look at the building next to it!
