The Freedom Rock

Wikipedia says “The Freedom Rock (also known as the Patriotic Rock) is a 12-foot-tall boulder located along Iowa Highway 25 near Menlo in western Iowa approximately one mile south of exit 86 on Interstate 80. The boulder weighs approximately 56 short tons. The rock is located on private property and was used for graffiti. Since 1999, however, it is repainted every year in time for Memorial Day with the purpose of thanking U.S. veterans and their families for their military service and sacrifice. “

While traveling west on Highway 80 – we discovered the Freedom Rock painted by Artist Roy “Bubba” Sorensen II”.
