Long Description:
Not letters, but an impressive display of numbers! In Arco, Idaho, every year, the graduating high school class climbs this mountain to paint gigantic numbers of their graduation year on the side of the mountain. As far as we could tell, a tradition that dates back all the way to 1929!

The display is so impressive that even a national newspaper took notice (visit link)

Trespassing on private farmland is easy for a bunch of euphoric high school graduates, but not recommended for out-of-state tourist, so we settled for taken a picture from a safe distance.
