Forgotten neon ...

I took this photo a couple of years ago, a little west of Three Forks on old US 10. The motel is still in Three Forks, and it seems like I can actually remember that great old sign guarding it, back in the day.


  1. Serendipitous art! Isn't the position, color and shape amazing? It almost looks like the sign grew there.

    I'd love to rescue and restore it, but my yard will look like Sanford and Sons...

  2. Oh, I know! I felt the same way when I saw that sign ... let's not even think about where to put the thing, or how many thousands of dollars it would cost to fix it up. It must be saved!

    (I was actually out that way a couple of days ago, and drove by to see if the sign was still out there. It is, so let me know whenever you want to come by and pick it up. :-p)

    And Nick, if you ever saw the real Lewis & Clark Motel, you wouldn't think that this setting is really too much worse than the original!
