Just a Photo Op

Read about this water tower in a travel book. It's just off the exit, so we stopped just long enough to get a few pictures. Pretty cool though!

It is leaning water tower, good for short stop for photo as passing by. Not much to say. Easy to spot when arriving to Groom.

What you see in the photo is basically it. We didn't even bother stopping, just rolled down the window and took a photo from the interstate.

You can see it well from the highway, but if you're not looking, you'll miss it. It's across from the giant crosses. Definitely a cute photo opportunity.

I was driving through this God forsaken part of the country when I stopped for gas and noticed the leaning water tower. As I went in to pay I noticed that they sold t-shirts, hats, and other souvenier items with the leaning tower on it. When your claim to fame is poor contruction you have a sad existence. But hey,...

We really didn't stop here long. In fact stopped, took a picture and kept on going. Yep its a route 66 attraction but there's nothing really much to it.

The leaning Tower of Texas is a really cute and unique leaning water tower that you can see from the 40 freeway. It's not necessary for you to pull over and take pictures because you can see it for a little while ahead on the road and will have your camera ready by the time you pass by right in... More

This is just a leaning water tower. A marker that you pass on Route 66 but if you were asleep and missed it, nothing to go back for.
