An "American West Phenomenon" If you travel the West, chances are you'll see a few of these hillside letters. In 1922, the senior class of Clarkdale HS built the hillside letter “C”.

Made up of large white bolders the C is easily visible and hard to miss unless your too busy texting friends. It's only a C but i could see how it would be a source of pride for some.

It is a big white C on the side of the mountain over Clarkdale. I was surprised there is a review option for a big C but as big C's go it is a nice big C.
