This was an unexpected pleasant experience while passing through this little town. I would recommend this stop for anyone. Be sure to take the time to go up in the elevator and really experience this amazing monument. Beautiful view.

For $5, you can ride an elevator up to the top of this obelisk. The windows are narrow slots with cool views of the land around the obelisk. I liked it.
