Anyone is welcome to come and take a peak at the vintage bottle installation, and if you're lucky you might get to shake hands with the man who started it all. Created by local artist Elmer Long, the bottle tree ranch has over 200 'trees' covered in bottles he collected as a kid when he and his father would venture out into the desert and collect 'anything they could find'.
