I-70, Colorado Glenwood Canyon

Zion Canyon National Park Utah || The Best Scenic Road in the USA|
Zion National Park is a southwest Utah nature preserve distinguished by Zion Canyon’s steep red cliffs. Zion Canyon Scenic Drive cuts through its main section, leading to forest trails along the Virgin River. The river flows to the Emerald Pools, which have waterfalls and a hanging garden. Also along the river, partly through deep chasms, is Zion Narrows wading hike.

Nude climbing sculpture in downtown Silt, Colorado
Silt, Colorado is located about 280 kilometres (175 miles) west of Denver, Colorado along Interstate 70 on the west side of the Continental divide. There is no other town in the United States named Silt! This town got its name from a warning along railroad tracks that there was silt ahead! Later a town grew up in that same spot and needed a name...
Anyway, I drive by Silt on an average of about a dozen times each year, only occasionally stopping for a break or refreshment.
During the summer of 2009 Silt made national news for the unique climbing sculpture in the middle of the town roundabout. That sculpture prominently displays the naked bottom of a climber scaling a cliff - as you can plainly see in this video. After the national commotion died-down I stopped in town to see for myself and record this video.
From my point of view (so to speak!) the sculpture doesn't seem like a big deal but I hear people still hang trousers on the climber now and again! Oh, yes, my car did start out in the wrong gear in this video - it's hard to shift, drive, and video record all at the same time!
Here's my Strange page that has a still photograph of this same sculpture:
