Cross Garden: Hell's Warning Label

I wouldn't have thought of it as a Cross Garden, but it was definitely worth the time to see. One area across the road is roped off with "No Trespassing" signs, but on the other side of the road the display seems to go on forever. Someone is still taking care of the property, as it has been mowed. I'd love to have had a chance to talk to someone there.

Cross-builder W.C. Rice died in 2004, but his voice survives in his artwork: "HELL IS HOT HOT HOT."


Cross Garden - Hell's Warning Label

The Cross Garden is wasting away, and one section has been posted No Trespassing. If you're gonna see it, better get to it before it is gone forever!

Obviously a little more run down, but, still there! Weeds have overgrown this "garden" but, still worth a stop! FYI -- this stop is on both sides of the street.

Amazing. Bring shoes to walk around. This is well worth the detour. Spent over 30 minutes exploring.
