Trip: Day 8

World's Tallest File Cabinet

Another incredible roadside attraction - the World's Tallest File Cabinet. It's height is truly mind boggling. It sits somewhat uncomfortably in a field, around some businesses and houses.

If you took all its cabinets and stood them end to end, it would be as high as it is.

Dog Chapel Interior

This is going to sound goofy. All I can tell you is it isn't. And I'm generally the first to think something is goofy.

The Dog Chapel is a small church-like building. All along the walls are cards and photos people have put up, remembering their dogs from the past. Some quiet music plays in the background. Stained glass windows line the walls. There are thousands of cards.

The phenomenon of The Dog is kind of amazing.

Around the place some dogs roam around. There is a small gallery with prints and books - high quality stuff. It was really beautiful and one of the highlights of my trip so far.

Bowman Mausoleum

This successful businessman lost his family, and made this monument to them. The statue is really excellent and depicts a lot of emotion. The full story is here: http://www.roadsideamerica.com/attract/VTCUTmausoleum.html
