Thunder Mountain Monument/Park

Filed under: Uncategorized — Ed @ 7:31 pm

There is an interesting little collection of bottle buildings and sculptures along I-80, just downhill from the lots I’m trying to buy (now we’re negotiating a survey). Here are some stories about the place and the man who inspired it:

Apparently it was an intentional community at one point, composed of people seeking “pure and radiant hearts”. It was also inspired by native american history and beliefs. I tried to visit, but the gate was locked when I was there. The road behind the park leads up to the lots I want.
