Right now Brendan and I are hosting friends who flew in from California and New York. It’s so nice having everyone here! Yesterday, one of our friends suggested that we check out The Cathedral of Junk. Cathedral? Junk? I’m down.

It’s located in South Austin and created by Vince Hannemann. You walk up his short drive way and ring the gong to see if Vince is around. If he’s not, you can just give him a call because his number is right by the fence.

At first, all you see is a pile of junk and then you start to notice how purposeful everything seems to be.

There was the rolling hills of bowling balls, roof of rubber duckies, and most of it was organized by color. The cathedral area is three stories and the way up is by tire stairs.

If you happen to find yourself in Austin, you’ve got to go. It’s completely free and totally worth it! Definitely Keeping Austin Weird!
