The Sign Post Forest, a world famous attraction was started in 1942 by a homesick U.S. Army G.I., Carl K. Lindley of Danville, Il., Company D, 341st Engineers.

I will tell you about the photos real quick though.  Last night when they got in they were very happy to see their bed.  Breakfast this morning was really good.  After that they wondered around this extremely cool Church Palace Hotel.  They had their picture taken in front of a piece of art work called Selfie.  They also rode a lion.  They then went for a nice walk and when they got back they had a beer.  After that they returned to their room for a nap.

Well I will have to tell you more about their trip later because it is time to head down to meet everyone.
