Big Statue of the Virgin Mary

From the highway, you can't miss the giant Virgin Mary. It really is huge, easily the size of a small office building. There are kneeling pads set out for people coming to pray. The only sound you'll hear out there is the slow rumble of a train, or the wind.

They sell postcards of the Virgin Mary and the cliffside city of Pine Bluffs at the gas station across the road.

There are the stations of the cross too. Can be seen from the highway, but is better to drive to it and walk around. Easier to get to it off exit one.

In Pine Bluffs, Wyoming there are a couple of nice roadside attractions. First, is the roadside rest off of I-80 which doubles as nature trail/mini-preserve. Some bumpy terrain but very picturesque. Best of all, it's free. Watch out for snakes!

Next, there is a huge statue of the Virgin Mary located just north of I-80, easily visible from the highway.
