Long Description:
The Route 66 mural on the side wall of Garcia's Café is approximately 10 feet high by 30 feet wide. The mural features a prominent Route 66 shield, an old vintage car on the Mother Road, crossing the dessert, & several hot Air Balloons.

As far as I could see in the dark, there was no plaque evident & the Mural is unsigned & not dated, but the Neon's were impressive.

The building is edged with Neon tubes, & and two impressive text Neon sign, typical of Route 66 signage.

Albuquerque, hosts the Worlds largest balloon festival.
