The Cross on the Altamont

As you leave Livermore and drive easterly towards Tracy onto the Altamont Pass on Highway 580, you come across a really big Cross cut out of the hill to the left of the highway.. It says "Jesus Saves".

The cool part is, it lights up at night (Like a big runway) and one can even see it from the sky. Here's an aerial picture of it from Google Maps. I quite like it when land owners near the highway or near it, produce statements or works of art for passers by to view.. Such is Americana.. From sculptures made of half buried cadillacs to a giant Picnic basket... We will always have creativity..


All I can say to the owner of the land or the creator of the cross on it is, "Bless you Sir" and "Thank you" for sharing.

Amen.
