  • 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. As my mom was trying to call him back to the car he said "What they gonna do, take my birthday away?" 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.
  • We were driving through the area, and considered stopping at the tree. Ended up driving right by it, because it's not nearly as impressive as we'd expected. It's just a tree sculpture... Of an average size.
  • Fun to see for what it is. It is an odd structure out in the middle of the salt flats. There is no explanation of the art. Read up on it online. Stop take a pic when heading west and get back on the road quickly. Not much to see.
  • I found this piece quite moving. Hard to get to from the east bound lane.Minus 2 stars due to almost getting run over twice.
  • Loved it ... really neat seeing this in 2011 on our 3rd cross country trip.
