Well, the famous Palo Alto that (you guessed it) Palo Alto is named for is a scraggly looking redwood tree down by the Cal-train tracks... I think it used to be one of those double trees, but it lost its alter-ego in a thunderstorm (here?), or something... hmm, don't trust me on that, however.

There's this weird Vietnam man statue on Furman's campus that i walk by when i walk around the lake, it always freaks me out because we have like cute little naked angels and babies everywhere else.

We are fortunate to have one of Rodin's original "thinker" statues. Of course, it happily is on loan, and has not been around the entire time I've been to. There had just been an empty pedestal, but that was too much of a temptation for students. Ever since someone put a big pokemon thing up there, there's been a substitute Rodin statue filling the place. An armless woman, in fact.
