Your Sunday Boring Postcard from Michael5000

Lemmon, South Dakota

Cone shaped pyramids add to the magnitude of this man-made splendor.  Over 100 of these pyramids ranging in size from eight to thirty-two feet are spread throughout the park..

Provenance: Gift of the Morgan F. Shirley Collection, 2009.

But why?

Just so.

Wait what?

Hey, it's there waiting for us. Conveniently located near the North Dakota border.

Why not? "Petrified Wood Park was built from 1930-32 by town men under the command of visionary Ole S. Quammen. "Thirty to forty otherwise unemployed men received sustenance during this period," explains a sign at the site."

Ooo... I've been there! Oh, wait--now I see how you got this card.

You think I could grab a bunch of "will work for food" people and have them pile rocks somewhere, then turn it into a tourist attraction? What kind of permit do you need for that?

Regina has a large artificial lake in its central city park built on that concept, but a shallow lake is at least a conventional thing to have in a tourist attraction.
