Location: Bedrock City Panos

Flagstaff May 2015 trip (436 of 894)-Pano

Easily one of the strangest places I’ve ever been is Bedrock City, 30 miles south of the South Rim of the Grand Canyon.  It’s a relic from 1972, when the Flintstones were still in the public consciousness.  Flagstaff May 2015 trip (478 of 894)-Pano

These interior recreations of the Flintstones cartoon are within individual “houses” in a multi-acre area.  There’s a few playground pieces- a dinosaur slide, regular swing set.  There’s also a very wonderfully creepy theatre that projects old Flintstones episodes.Flagstaff May 2015 trip (637 of 894)-Pano

One of the things that really stood out was the effort and dedication to create such a thing.  It makes me wonder what modern pop phenomenon could inspire such a “city” attraction, and how it’ll be looked at decades after the phenomenon fades.Flagstaff May 2015 trip (411 of 894)-Pano
