There is a huge rock near a gravel pit on Hwy.25 in rural Iowa .

For generations, kids have painted slogans, names, and obscenities on this rock, changing its character many times. A few months back, the rock received its latest paint job, and since then it has been left completely undisturbed.

It was thought that the flag was draped over the rock, but it's not. It's actually painted on the rock too.

Can't you believe this was done by a teenager!?!

Here's the artist Ray 'Bubba' Sorensen.

I've add a special TRIBUTE TUESDAY to this blog. Please scroll down to see it!
