The Carefree Sundial, in Carefree, Arizona, is the "third largest sundial in the Western Hemisphere.

It was designed by architect Joe Wong and solar engineer John I. Yellott.

It was erected in the Sundial Circle plaza in 1959.

The sundial is made from a steel frame and covered in anodized copper. It measures 90 feet in diameter.

The metal gnomon, the shadow-casting portion of the dial, stands 35 feet above the plaza and extends 62 feet.

      I've got the time if you've got the beer! *groan*
      Another fascinating place you're showing us. It's hard to fathom the sheer size of this gigantic watch!
      The landscaping is nice too.

      Nice to see the Saguaro cactus... we don't have them here and I really like the way they look. You could do a Saguaro series showing the different shapes. 8^)
