Think Obama Got the Message?
When President Obama flew over Western Colorado yesterday on his way to Grand Junction in Air Force One, he was greeted by a giant message carved into a nearby field.
The message was designed by world-renowned crop artist Stan Herd and is a project of Protect the Flows, a coalition of more than 500 Western businesses that depend on the river. It occupies about one acre, each letter is 30 feet from top to bottom and the entire message is about 360 feet long, equal to the height of a 36 story building.
