Most People Have No Idea This Unique Park In Nevada Exists
It’s been said that one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. In the case of Thunder Mountain Monument, it’s one man’s legacy. The late Frank Van Zant, also known as Chief Rolling Mountain Thunder, created his unique roadside park of exotic folk art and architectural oddities out of bottles, concrete, scrap iron, car hoods, dolls’ heads, typewriters, gas pumps and other found materials over a period of three decades.
The five-acre park on Star Peak Road, off Highway I-80 in Imlay, is now owned and cared for by Van Zant’s son, Daniel.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
This unique roadside park is worth checking out if you’re ever in the area.
