Tire Rim Statue
Tire Rim Statue at 2561 SR970, just east of Cle Elum, welded on a whim in 2001 by Pat Merritt, who still lives at the site. He discovered he had a pile of tires he did not know what to do with, so he welded over 50 of them together inside one of his shops, moved the statue outside, and then raised it with a log loader. "You wouldn't believe how many people stop and take their picture with that statue," he laughed.
