It is in human’s nature to create. Even if it means creating something outstanding out of…well, bottles. . If you find yourself traveling along Route 66, then do stop at Elmer Long’s Bottle Tree Ranch in California. . The place is not only an amazing photo location. It also has its own story to tell. . When Elmer was a little boy, his father would scour the desert collecting all sorts of things. When the man passed away, Elmer was left with a gigantic collection of glass bottles. . In 2000, the bearded man created his first bottle tree. Throughout the years, the tree ranch would grow. Soon, there were over 200 trees that made noises, when the wind passed through. . In 2019, Elmer Long passed away. His family promises to take care of his legacy.

Hi! I’ve had this account for a little while now and I wasn’t sure what exactly I wanted it to be, so now that I have a plan it’s time for a revamp. • I had a general idea that I wanted to be a more vocal and engaged part of the Instagram body positive and mental health communities, instead of just the lurker I’ve always been on my personal account. I also want to have a place to hold myself accountable for a) getting dressed every day in an outfit I feel comfortable showing to the internet (working from home probs...) and b) leaving my house and doing fun things. I’ve wanted to start vlogging for a while now, just for me because I love making and editing videos and also I want to document this very weird and transition filled time in my life, so I have something to look back on for perspective. I think I’ll start here on stories. So on stories you can look for daily outfit pics, me singing in my car, documenting my mental health and BoPo journey, and just daily life for now until I save up for a vlog camera! On the grid you can find photos like this. Pics of me living my life and documenting how I style my midsize body (with a twist - as I get more comfortable using photoshop and procreate, etc). Captions will be long form paragraphs about mental health and body positivity, one random emoji, or anything in between. I don’t fancy myself a writer or any sort of motivational influence. This is mostly a project for me, to be engaged in something fun and creative that is helpful for my mental health, if you want to follow along I’m glad to have you!

From what I heard, Elmer Long has died. He’s been a legend of Route 66. outside of Barstow, in the middle of the desert, he started building weired sculptures, which turned into a magical forest of bottle trees. A beautiful, peaceful place, which he let people use for Picknicks and even weddings - even though he didn’t care about people a lot. A spent a night once with him talking forever - and all of a sudden he reminded me a lot of Henry David Thoreau. And a little of Gandalf. RIP, Elmer. #elmerlong #elmerlongsbottletreeranch #bottletree #bottletreeranch #route66 #roadtripusa #helendale #walden #gandalf #thoreau #henrydavidthoreau #motherroad #usatrip #california #kalifornien

Erste Sehenswürdigkeit unserer Tour: Elmers Bottle Tree Ranch. Leider ist Elmer im Juni dieses Jahr verstorben, so das die Ranch nun hinter verschlossenen Toren liegt...nichtsdestotrotz, rechts ranfahren, aussteigen, gucken. Die sommerlichen 38 Grad sorgen auch dafür das man sich nicht zu lange draußen aufhält, es fühlt sich an als würde die Haut brennen! #usa #route66 #roadtrip #elmersbottletreeranch #bottletreeranch #bottletreeranch #bottle #usaroadtrip #tripforlife #lifestyle #uslife #heat #hotsummer #desert #california #loveusa #usalover #favorite #place #nature #explore #america #magic #travelphotography #travelgram #potd #wishilivedhere #heart #happytobehere #youandme #qualitytime

Oro Grande - California - USA 🇺🇸 The Bottle Tree Ranch was created by the artist Elmer Long. As a child, he accompanied his father who was collecting glass bottles and many abandoned objects on the edge of Route 66. Elmer’s Bottle Tree Ranch is literally a forest of bottle trees (large metal pipes with bottles hanging from them), located along Route 66, right in the heart of the California desert. After visiting this beautiful place in 2017, I of course abandoned my bottle of Orval in the middle of these thousands of bottles. I didn’t have the chance to meet Elmer because he wasn’t present. The portal is open, no one is there to welcome you and it is both exciting and scary to venture into this space because we do not really know if we are allowed ! Unfortunately, Elmer passed away on June 22nd, 2019. He was 72. #orvalaroundtheworld #beerpics #beertography #trappist #biere #beer #beergasm #beeroftheday #beergeek #beerlover #beerporn #orval #belgianbeer #beerstagram #cerveza #craftbeerporn #beertime #bier #instabeer #lovebeer #beersnob #beerme #ratebeer #craftbeer #ilovebeer #beernerd #brew #beerphoto #bottletreeranch #elmersbottletreeranch

Throwback to the first fashion film me & my long time dear friend and fellow artist @thejeffkulig Collaborated on! It was a beautiful August afternoon in California: I can still recall all of that paint and some stitching marks on my hands a few nights before. Yet there was always good music & company. A million thanks to the awesome people I met along the way, who made me feel like I was at home & without whom the outcome of this fashion experiment would have been so different! ;) If you wanna have a sneak peek: https://vimeo.com/65184780 👗: @kellytoode 📸: @thejeffkulig #2012 #fashionfilm #lajollafashionfilmfestival #bottletreeranch #californiagirl #artfashion #painteddress

Located along Route 66, in the heart of the California desert is Elmer's Bottle Tree Ranch. Our Cactus Motel shirt was inspired by the vintage motel signs we saw on our road trip down Route 66, so when it came time to shoot this collection we headed back out on the open road. #OriginalCowgirl #Cactus #Route66 #RT66 #roadtrip #bottletree #bottletreeranch #cowgirlstyle #wanderlust #womensfashion #NFRstyle #nfrFashion #dallasmarket #dallasmart #desert

It was with great sadness last month that I learned Elmer Long of The Bottle Tree Ranch along historic Route 66 had died. “I’ve done something out here that’s for sure,” he chuckled looking out over the thousands of glass bottles creating a maze of colorful madness in front of us. “Shoot, I’ve still got lots to do, too, just no energy to do it.” RIP Elmer •• •• Elmer’s story was a part of my three-part series about driving Route 66 for @enterprise_inspires •• •• #route66 #route66roadtrip #historicroute66 #route66california #bottletree #bottletreeranch #elmerlong #rip #portraitphotography #portraits #artist #legend #californiaadventure #cali #travelportrait #inmemory #roadtrippers #roadtripusa

7-24-19: Birthday Vacation - Day 5 Viva Las Vegas! My beautiful friends, @aaosuarez and Katy, picked us up and we took a road trip to Las Vegas. We took a detour down Route 66 blasting “Life is a Highway” obviously. It was “so majestic”, “so historic” and we didn’t even get lost. We stopped at Elmer’s Bottle Tree Ranch and Peggy Sue’s Diner. We got really into the table game and played it throughout lunch. We arrived and checked into the Flamingo. Ed and I had our own room and it was gorgeous. We went to CVS to get supplies so we wouldn't die of dehydration (water, mixer, snacks) and went shopping in the Miracle Mile shops. I was almost convinced to buy a $70 pair of sunglasses from Quay, but I resisted (you almost got me Vegas). Later, we went to Panera for dinner. I hadn’t been to Panera in so long (Get the fiji apple salad and thank me later). After, we played at the slot machines and each lost a dollar. 🙃 😭 I think Ed lost 2 dollars. He’s a big spender. 🤑 #roadtrip #bottletreeranch #elmersbottletreeranch #peggysues #peggysuesdiner #flamingohotel #miraclemileshops #panera
