Ames Brothers Pyramid, Buford Reviews
Great roadside attraction! Just as you expect. Just a random pyramid in the middle of no where!
A bit out of the way but we'll worth it! Beautiful scenery. Very cool location.
Interesting story behind the brothers but it isn't available at the site unless you arelucky enough to meet up with a railroad enthusiast. Beautiful view at the site. Wouldn't go back again, other locals close by I would spend more time at.
Nice views, interesting history, and pretty good place for some astrophotography
Definitely worth a trip to see this interesting monument. We visited in mid March. The roads to the monument were a bit tricky with the snow so I might recommend going later in the season but not far off the main road and definitely worth a visit.
