Glasgow’s michelangelo

Posted by: amy-briggs | August 1, 2009 | No Comment |

A little background: Most of the days during the week Charlotte and I drive to our MAPS station to do habitat surveys, bird censuses and banding. To get there, we turn right on the big main road, drive for a long time, turn right on the cornwell ranch road and navigate a confusing network of gravel roads and two tracks to get to our creek. Within the first 2 minutes of our drive while we are still on the main road, we leave Glasgow. On the outskirts of town, we see some hills on the right. On top of these hills are these mysterious creations:

Mystified? So are we. What we have managed to learn about these things can be summarized as follows:

-The guy who makes them is named Buck Samuelsen

-He sells them

-Someone in Glasgow bought one (its outside a store)

-They are made of old oil drums and other scrap metal

In any case, they are a cool addition to the scenery along highway 2. Hooray public art installations!
