Here's another grand old Southwestern sign in the shape of a cactus. The La Siesta Motel sports a friendly looking marquee that appears to wave a hello. Or else my eyes are starting to go...

 

UPDATE 09/10 : The La Siesta Motel was demolished in late 2000 or early 2001. A shopping complex took the place of the motel around 2006 and is reusing the sign. 09-10

The Ghost Ranch Lodge in Tucson was built in 1941 and is an interesting stop, especially if you're looking for last minute lodging at night. The sign itself was created in 1952 and designed by Georgia O'Keefe.

 

UPDATE 03/06 : The Ghost Ranch Lodge closed down in 2005 to become senior housing. Not sure of the fate of the grand neon sign. 03-06

UPDATE 12/08 : November 29, 2008 saw the landmark Ghost Ranch Lodge catch fire, burning two buildings and partially burning the restaurant and lounge. Word is the fire may have been intentionally set and is being investigated by Tucson fire investigators and police. According to the Arizona Daily Star, the Ghost Ranch Lodge had been closed since 2005 after having been in business for over 60 years. After being sold to a new owner 2007, plans to convert the old motel to low-cost elder housing fell through earlier this year. 12-08
