When liberty calls: local bottle tree ranch makes for good sightseeing and photos

Hundreds of antique bottles on metal rods are displayed at Elmer Long's Bottle Tree Ranch in Oro Grande, Calif., along U.S. Route 66. Since 2000, Long's forest of bottle trees has grown from several wooden posts with his father's bottles, to metal rods holding a plethora of glass bottles.
