Frankenstein Rock.

Frankenstein Rock

A massive natural rock that has been painted to look like the Frankenstein monster. It was here when I got here in 1976, but it had entirely black paint then. About 10 years ago someone "touched it up" with some green paint, but the black is showing back through. A pretty funny-looking rock.
