Yes, at the end of the road - you can't miss it, it's a chest of drawers :)

Saw most of these on a programme on Prairie Public tv recently.... personally if I was on a roadtrip, i would be diverted to see this sort of thing... sometimes you cannot beat a piece of kitsch... or roadside americana in this case....
so far in Canada I've seen a smiling rock, at Gladstone (geddit) but I missed the 10 metre tall camel near Spirit Sands desert......
