Right on the freeway but do not stop on the shoulder. $$$ Ticket for that. Go around to the parking lot. It is a little hard to get to there.

Even if it a bit obnoxious. The story about the man is interesting and the little park at the Base makes it worthwhile. Lovely old house is interesting as well.

You have to see this in person to truely understand how awesomeness of this statue. The staff is friendly and the view is perfect. You walk through nature trail to get to statue. It is a quick adventure that is perfect.

Couldn't believe this statue - I hope our country doesn't decide he needs to be torn down. A fascinating person - Cherokee connections and a true believer in the USA.

Stop at the visitors centre to view this magnificent statue up close. The visitors centre has a washroom and shop and is quaint with a short trailing path to the statue. Well worth a 10 min stop.
