Extraterrestrial Highway Sign: Replaced

I've been to this sign several times over the years. I was there in early July 2020. The original sign has been replaced by a much taller sign. Even as high as it currently is, people have climbed the sign to put stickers on it. Still a great stopping place along ET Hwy.
