There are areas and spur roads where

We understand that it is artwork,
but it is also a good way to dispose of
your garbage... like throwing old tires
out in the desert and painting them
different colors, except that the tree
will eventually be cut down.

there is Crack In The Ground. A trail takes
you inside the Crack In The Ground
Not suitable for persons with claustrophobia.
It is moderately difficult with only a couple places
you need to use caution. During winter months
after snowing, it will take longer to melt because
the trail is always in the shade.
