The Freedom Rock

Have you heard about the Freedom Rock in Iowa?  Every year for the past 11 years this man named Bubba Sorensen has painted this huge rock as a Memorial Day tribute to honor those that serve our country, it's amazing!  He re-paints this rock with a new design every year and unveils it on Memorial Day and people come from all over the world to see it.  The rock is actually a large granite boulder that was dug out of the Schillberg Rock Quarry and it weighs approx. 56 ton (50.8Mg) and is 12 ft (3.7m) high.
