My husband and I had never heard of this thing and stopped for a fun photo op. After some googling, we ended up falling down a rabbit hole reading about the conspiracy theories surrounding this thing. Very interesting stuff!!!

A fun stop. We spent a few minutes taking photos.

There were ground wasps flying about while we were there, so you should take caution in approaching the Acorn.

Not really an exciting stop, but we had a good time getting there. I wish there was a plaque explaining the story or something. I would not recommend going out of your way for this, but if you are in the area go check it out.
