Fresh paint really pops! Easy to see from the highway and frontage/access road, and the installation is halfway between two exits off I-15. No bathrooms or water, but plenty of places to pull off and take a roadside piddle.

Took a quick trip from Fremont Street to this location. Easy trip. There were about 20 cars in the parking lot, which surprised us as it was a Monday at 4:00 on an overcast day. Beware that there are two parking curbs on a cement pad in the middle of the parking lot. Very easy to overlook and drive over. Could ruin your experience.

Installation is unique; makes you wonder and admire, especially the vibrant colors.
