If you come to Kansas City, Penn Valley Park is a good place to get a great view of the city.
This is Scout, a sculpture created by Cyrus Dallun for the Panama-Pacific Expo in San Francisco in 1915. As he was making his way back east after the Expo, he stopped here for a viewing. Legend has it that the people of Kansas City liked him so much they raised $15,000 to buy him.
He looks like he belongs here to me. I can't believe I have lived in the area for almost 30 years and haven't seen him until now. Better late than never I guess.
