Bottle Tree Ranch, Oro Grande, California in pictures

November 20, 2013

As a child, Elmer Long scoured the desert with his father, collecting everything and anything. While a younger Long took notes, his father amassed an incredible collection of glass bottles. When he passed away, Long inherited his work, as well as a loss at what to do with the strange collection. In 2000, an idea struck the famously bearded Elmer Long, and he created his first bottle tree.

Shaped like hat racks, with glass bottles of all colors and shapes angled off of them, the bottle tree ranch has now grown to 200 installations. Besides being a beautiful gallery, the hollow bottles also whirr a sweet tune when the wind passes through them. For travelers making their way across America, this collection and its curator are two treasures without equal.
