    Waste of time. I followed Google maps to find this and ended up driving about 17 miles down a poorly maintained frontage road next to the interstate. Couldnt find the "tree" until i looked across the ...  more »

    This is not an attraction to stop and visit by any means. There is no place to stop and quite frankly, it doesn't warrant it nor do I think it would be safe to do so as its basically on the highway. W...  more »

    I've been by this piece of art on numerous occasions. I love the fact that there's nothing around for miles and then pow, here's a giant art installation. I recall a time when it had recently rained and you really had to watch your step. I've included a picture of my sisters feet.

    My dad always wanted to see it up close but the signs say emergency stopping only. He finally walked out there shortly before passing from lung cancer.

I always think of him standing out there with his arms held high and a look of 'I did it!' when I pass bye. It makes me smile. Love you dad. Really though you should obey the signs and just take a glimpse while passing by on the freeway. The view is better from the westbound lanes.

    I saw this in 2004 and it did not have a fence around it. Sad that it cam to this. I'm hopping to be driving by this spot in June and get some Ariel shots of this to give a different look of it. Here is what it looked like.
