Just about 6 miles down Highway 212 from our home is–a roadside attraction?–a work of folk art?–a result of passion?– a labor of love?–or obsession?
From about 1957 through 1980, Adolph Land along with help from his wife and others, constructed this monument to the happenings, stories and people outlined in the Bible. There is an actual path to follow through the installations but not being a linear type guy and not having had much association with the Bible over my life, I just wandered around recording what struck my fancy.
The attraction is now owned by Rick and Verdine Williams who live on the property and maintain the stone structures. The Pathway is still open to the public and donations for maintenance are gratefully accepted. Oh, and it is FREE! There is much more to see than just what appears here. There are installations depicting the crucifixion, the resurrection, Enoch, Moses, the tomb of Lazurus and much, much more, including an old time sun dial and one of the first electrified street lamps from Billings, so if you are in the area stop by and see ’em all. Say Hi to Rick and Verdine and if you want to say hi to us, well, just ask them how to find “the place with the yellow bikes.”
