Don't Look At Me
Heading east on I-8, I noticed one of those "I'm a cell phone tower and I'm embarrassed to admit it" towers. This time it's disguised as a palm tree. I'm just supposed to ignore the equipment building? Usually I see these kind of towers in expensive communities where the residents can't live without their cell phones, but can't tolerate the sight of bare metal. The last ones I saw were in a town just north of Colorado Springs, but those two towers were pretending to be pine trees. Particularly ugly pine trees, but that was the intent.
I don't really understand this one -- out in the desert, far from any community, and the next cell phone tower was plainly visible a few miles down the road. Maybe a test tower? Who knows.
