Junk Art Sculpture Garden - Olancha, CA
California
Just off Highway 395 near Walker Creek is a pop-up public art gallery of metal sculptures and other junk art, including a piece that accepts and offers gifts, and another labeled "Be Kind Not Right." The largest piece features a hitch hiking girl with a suitcase. The most colorful sculpture features a plaque with instructions that read: "Give and Take. Put something in give container then retrieve something from take container. You can give without taking, But not the other way around. If you choose to take without giving, the mirror will make you face yourself and the eyes will follow you for ever and ever. Just like in real life." Directions: Off of highway 395 in Olancha. Dirt road on the west side of the highway, just north of Walker Creek Road. Look for the Walker Creek Road sign (yellow and black sign) and then look for the dirt road. Admission: Free.

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
