White-Crosses.Com
(AKA TragicHighways.com)


Anyone who has traveled America's vast interstate highway system has almost certainly seen them:  The ominous White Crosses that pepper the desolate roadways.  Being a well-traveled musician from the Indie band Noodle Muffin, I frequently encountered these road memorials during long treks across the Western U.S. badlands.  After a while, they became a morbid obsession for me.  I now have a sixth sense for locating these white crosses ... hiding among the desert shrubs, lurking around treacherous bends, decorating empty stretches of road ...  Each monument evokes a slew of unanswered questions:  How did the accident happen?  Who were the victims?  Why do their families and friends decorate and maintain these crosses?  That's what drives me to catalog these roadside memorials:  the lonely mystery of the accident and the sad beauty of the monuments.
  So, armed with a digital camera, I document the White Crosses I encounter.  On this website, you can explore dozens of road memorials.  I've put as much information as I can deduce from the monuments, along with half-crocked, analyses of what might have happened (but probably didn't).  There are even a few cases where the riddle has been solved, thanks to Internet searches and diligent visitors.  So, pull up a chair, grab a brew, and prepare to journey down the tragic highways of America.  Oh, and for a soundtrack to your morbid journey, be sure to download some cool, free MP3's from my band Noodle Muffin's website and MySpace page.  Enjoy!

UPDATE 3/11/2007:  Well, I've finally gotten off my lazy ass and added a few more white crosses to this website.  This time, you'll discover a couple of cool ones from the ever deadly Hwy 395, a monument just outside Vegas, and an update to one of my favorite "white crosses", Ned's Star of David.  Special thanks to those visitors who wrote questioning whether I'd become a white cross myself! 

UPDATE 8/19/2007:  Thanks to "Nerdy Net Sleuth" Valerie, several of these White Cross mysteries have been solved!  I've updated the corresponding pages and labeled them as "Solved by Val".

Cheers, Major Noize, Noodle Muffin
