A Hidden Memorial to Lenin in a Forest

I saw this article about all the Lenin memorials in Russia and it mentioned in particular one in Tyukalinsk that is a grove of trees planted in the shape of Lenin’s name.

I wondered how hard it would be to find it in Google Maps

Let’s see…if I was a Lenin grove of trees, where would I be?

Maybe that forest to the south west?

Wait! What’s this?

Found it!

Google maps is a tremendous thing.

Here is the link if you want to see it yourself.

This reminds me of a story a few years ago. I do not remember all the details other than it involved a Saskatchewan football team coming to play at the University of Manitoba. Some Saskatchewan fans went out at night and poured liquid fertilizer on a grassy area near the stadium to spell out their team’s name. In a few days the letters appeared as a darker green on the bank.
