Giant Cross

There's also a smallish, decrepit Ferris wheel in the woods on the hill just beyond it. Seems to be a twin of the one across the way at the fireworks place.

A large cross seemingly made of aluminum siding and within close proximity of an adult bookstore (probably the reasoning behind the location of the cross). It is approximately the same dimensions as the one in Sugarlimb, Tennessee, further down I-75, past Knoxville.
