Calostimucu: Toth Indian Head

We were out enjoying the day and stopped in Punta Gorda to seek out this attraction. And there it was, big as life. The Indian Head is looking a little weather worn, as all wood does eventually. He sits on the corner, so you can park in the lot across the street and take pictures without much interference.
