Decorating Creosote Bushes At Christmas   5 comments

Christmas 2012

Driving old Route 66 in the foothills of the Black Mountains near Oatman, Arizona, we noticed one of the ever-present Creosote bushes along the edge of the highway was decorated. Figuring this had to be a photo opt, I stopped to capture the moment.

Continuing our drive to Oatman, we saw another decorated Creosote bush: then another and another. I have since learn that this is a Christmas tradition — children decorating the bushes along Route 66 outside of Oatman.

  3. How funny! I think next year I’ll decorate some of my creosote bushes…just for the bunnies in the backyard.
