Kit Carson Observation Tower
It appears to be welded out of old rusty tools and metal objects. Just awesome.[Paul Kraus, 11/01/2005]
The 35-foot-tall "lighthouse" was built out of scrap metal in the 1950s by a retired submarine welder named Owen Moreland. It marked his property in the now-ghost-town of Aroya, before it was moved here.
