Still there in all its glory. Wifi didn't work and the toilet wouldn't flush. Fun stop! Nice way to end your visit to Carhenge.

This is great! Just north of Carhenge, sitting at the side of the road, breaking up the cornfield views. Brilliant!

The Hay Bale Rest area is still there, and now has free wifi. Great photo opportunity if you're in the area.

Rest Stop - Hay Bales, Easy Chair, Toilet

Pretty funny, but I wouldn't go out of your way to see it. Of course it's two minutes from Carhenge, so you might as well, right?!
