This is one of the many roadside shrines - or descansos, as they're called in Spanish - we see throughout the country. This type, with more color, multiple candles, flowers, personal objects, seem to be very prevalent in areas with a large Hispanic population.
I'm planning on writing more about these memorials in the future, because traveling the highways for almost thirteen years now, they've always been of interest to me.
Thanks to my friend Gary Goulette for another great photo.
