The Calistoga Water Truck







My wife and I have often taken a short trip into the Napa Valley on Silverado Trail and drive to the end in Calistoga, CA, known for their natural spas and mud baths, Calistoga Water, among other things. I've passed this wonderful truck sculpture that we call the Calistoga Water Truck many times and today decided to stop and take some pictures and also to see it up close. It's a great rendition, even showing a differential, a loaded bed and a reckless driver and his dog companion.

You can see the size of it as I had my picture taken next to it. It has a lovely rust-like patina and is a pleasant eye-catcher that makes me smile every time I see it. Enjoy!
