Eartha: World's Largest Rotating Globe

Garmin now occupies this building. The giant globe is still visible from the parking lot and you can walk up close to the windows and take photos.

Eartha: World's Largest Rotating Globe

Eartha the Globe has been fixed and is rotating nicely. There are displays about geocaching and the globe's creation/refurbishment. As an added bonus, there are very nice public bathrooms available. Be sure to stop by even if its after hours, since the globe can be seen through the glass wall of the lobby.

Eartha: World's Largest Rotating Globe

Eartha: World's Largest Rotating Globe was having her engine tuned and surface refreshed when we visited so she was actually more like The Day the Earth Stood Still. The DeLorme people say her work will be finished by winter 2011/2012, so until then she doesn't rotate. Still a fun fun sight to see and it's free, with a nice gift shop to boot.
