The Bart Simpson Tree pops up quickly, but thanks to his yellow head, red shirt and blue pants, he's hard to miss. Worth a wave back as you drive by.

I came across this gem just outside Mt. Horeb on my way to New Glarus. It's a tree stump painted to look like Bart Simpson. It's on Hwy 92, about five miles south of Mt. Horeb, in front of someone's house near the road.
