Monolith

This is a steel monolith similar to one that was discovered in Utah in 2020. It is on the peak of a hill just outside of downtown and requires a moderate hike. Note that this is its second iteration; the original sculpture was vandalized. Please treat the current monolith with respect.

This second monolith is anchored in 720 pounds of concrete, so perhaps it will stick around longer than the others.
