Giganticus Headicus – Route 66 Arizona

There were many times when road tripping through the southwest that I tried to find the balance between knowing too much and knowing too little about a place I’d be passing through. On one hand, if you research an area too much, some of the delight experienced through serendipity is lost. On the other, if you don’t research anything at all, you might miss out on seeing something that would surely tickle your fancy had you known about it.

Firmly in the unknown to me department was Giganticus Headicus. While clipping west along on Route 66 towards Kingman, Arizona I had to quickly throw out the anchor when the big green head came into view. Jackpot!

    Interesting post Rachel. I know the feeling. On a ride to Yarnell, AZ I saw some giant cowboy spurs about 5 mi. northwest of Wickenburg, AZ The spurs were about 20 feet tall and had been there since 2015. I didn’t get a photo but a good photo was posted by Vinny Gragg at They are no longer there as a truck hit them. Supposedly the city of Wickenburg was going to repair them and relocate them in the city, but I don’t know if that ever happened.
