Somewhere on the Map: Thunder Mountain Monument

If you've driven on I-80 through northern Nevada past Imlay you've probably looked to the south of the freeway and said, "what the heck is that place?"

An interpretive sign at the monument says, "The most frequently asked question travelers stopped by the shear oddity of this conglomeration of junk secured by cement is, 'What is this?'" See you're not alone.

The extremely short answer: Chief Rolling Mountain Thunder built this monument from discarded items as a monument to the suffering and plight to the American Indians. Explore the monument for yourself and discover more history behind the motivation of Chief Rolling Mountain Thunder.

Happy Exploring,
