Ah…So nice and refreshing to see a mighty Sequoia proudly beaming above the treeline….

Except.

This is MICHIGAN and we DONT HAVE SEQUOIA HERE !

Its a damn cell phone tower. Its in a rich northwestern suburb of Detroit named Bloomfield Hills. See, the people there are just too damn fancy to have any dirty looking cell phone tower in their hood. So they made whatever telecom create a fake tree looking monopole.

Hilarious.

  • I agree. I find these things so ugly. There is one in Connecticut just like that one that sticks out like a sore thumb. I think regular cell towers are not really ugly. I think anything in its natural form has a certain grace. I guess I’m just a frustrated wanto be engineer.

  • Yep yep – thats the one. Been there quite awhile, but I dont really hang in that hood much. If you can call it a hood – lol. Great Indian and Thai food out there though….

    ;)

  • If it’s the one I think it is, it’s in West Bloomfield, at the corner of Northwestern Hwy & Orchard Lake Rd. It’s been there for several years.

  • I think it beats the alternative. No matter where you live.
