The impressive wind mobilized structures stand 50 feet+ tall according to Wikipedia. My fortuitous sighting is not alone; Michael Coletta recounts his experince and does a far better job speaking of their poetic beauty (http://www.newsblab.com/starrkempf/). He documented with pictures from their eastern sides-something I will probably not be able to do as the iron gate that surronds the little outdoor "museum" looks tricky to climb.
And although I've been there a few maybe 6 times, it's always by chance and I can never seem to remember exactly how to get there. It's an anomaly really. Maybe there's some magnetic pull like the Bermuda Triangle...But if you're in the area heading toward the Starsmore on Pine Grove stop by, these sci-fi-esque pieces are worth a look.
