While driving from Arizona to Cleveland, I think Texas or Oklahoma...on the south side of route 40 were these VW Beetles buried in the sand. I just about drove off the road to take a few pics. Unfortunately, it was raining and the wind was blowing approx 40mph with 70mph gusts...while chasing my hat, my lens cap, and trying to feel my fingers I managed to snap this pic. I converted it to B/W because all the colors of the graffiti was overpowering. Plus it was a dull, grey day and I didn't have my flash.
