This past June, 21 of us from the Children's Equipping Center at IHOP traveled to Colorado in 2, 12 passenger vans to do a Signs and Wonders Camp. While driving in Colorado, we spotted the above sign that said, "POINT OF INTEREST", so we decided to stop and check out the "so called" attraction. The picture below is the fascinating museum that we found, as the "POINT OF INTEREST".

Notice, the hand-painted sign that says "SEE 6 STATES". This museum claimed that if you climbed its tower you could see 6 states from this one spot. I climbed the tower, it cost me $1.00. I looked. I saw. I was pretty high off the ground and to be honest, I have no idea if I actually saw 6 states. Apparently someone erased the squiggly lines that designate the state boundaries- where one state ends and one state begins on my map.

The real interesting thing about this museum was all of the ancient western artifacts and collectibles that this old guy had. There were old bottles, arrow heads, cars, books, "artwork", dishes, clothing... it was like the Ingalls family had a yard sale and this guy bought it all! Among the artifacts were also some really freaky stuff like albino snakes or pig embryos in jars of formaldehyde. But the freakiest of them all, was the two headed calf pictured below, along with a copy of one of my favorite books!

I can think of no better picture to promote unity and world peace than this! Eat your heart out Al Gore. Everyone has a place in this world folks, even my friend Brad the Two-Headed Calf.
