This summer, we took a day trip and stopped at Thunder Mountain Indian Monument.
Thunder Mountain is very unique. Very Interesting.VERY Strange.
I think the story goes like this:
A Native American had a vision and began to build. He built from sticks and sagebrush and mud... whatever he could find in the desert around him. He kept building and building and building -- it was a never ending project. He passed away some time ago and it has fallen into disarray.
So now the State of Nevada is going to try and restore it.
Here is a little background on the "real" story, just click if you'd like to find out.
I read the words "hippie artisans" in the article while glancing thru it, so maybe he wasn't a Native American? I guess legends are part truth, part made up or exaggerated stories.
I really can't find the words to describe it.
I think the 'Very' in VERY strange does a good job.
But it's also worth trying to restore -- it's unique little things like this you find on a road side that makes traveling fun!
If you come my way---you'll travel right by it.
There are parts that are fenced off, so vandals can't get close.
(I guess if you are a vandal, you do whatever you want tho)
And then....there are certain things you can get close to.
Just a collection of --- old, odd stuff.
