Grass Smiley Face

There is a smiley face mowed into the grass of a large field on the east side of Sweeten Creek Road in Arden, NC. It is halfway between Rathfarnham Road and Windsor Drive. The locals say it's been there for many, many years.

This is a very busy road, with little to no shoulder to pull off on, so be cautious...a slow drive-by might be best. And it is a private residence, so I don't think they'd want people pulling into their driveway.
