What is "The Thing"?
Located on a hilltop between Benson and Wilcox, Arizona, you will see a large red, yellow, blue filling station and gift shop. Inside you will find the typical southwest roadside gifts such as bows, arrows, moccasins, baseball caps, turquoise jewelry and The Thing? shot glasses, T-shirts and other items with the logo on it.
Next week, Sharon and I are going to head down to Tucson, Bisbee, and Tombstone. One of the stops along the way is to the town of Benson to see "The Thing" for ourselves. Post and pictures to come later....
That sign would be enough to make me curious while driving by! Hmm... mummies are not what I expected "The Thing" to be. I was expecting a big lizard for some reason. Have fun! Those sheds sound worth checking out.ReplyDelete
