Favorite Cell Site
Located in Colorado along
I-25, just south of Cheyenne, WY (Click the picture to see the antennas)
Is that a Buffalo on the hill? No, it's a cellular
antenna. Click on the buffalo for a closer look.
Story? As you drive in the wide open spaces north of Denver
and into Wyoming, you will see the occasional hilltop silhouette of a
horse, a cowboy, or, in this picture, a bison. It can be seen for miles
and provides a little visual interest in an otherwise desolate area.
This is a replacement of an earlier bison. While the mascot of the
University of Colorado is a buffalo, this bison, different but similar
to a buffalo, is closer to the University's arch rival, Colorado State
University in Fort Collins. CSU's mascot is a ram, and they would love
to replace this object of scorn. Fortunately, the bison antenna has no
relationship with CU, although you would never get their supporters to
antenna was constructed by, of all companies, the Mountain Wireless
Construction Company of Aurora, Colorado, no relation to us. The
12-foot long figure is made of marine plywood and was built in their
shop, and they found it would not fit through the door when completed.
A few alterations and some brute strength eventually got the animal out
antennas belong to Verizon Wireless and the bison and the cell site are
named "Pipeline," after an oil pipeline buried beneath.
