The approach to the Lee Oriental Rock Garden in Phoenix, Arizona.

   When I first approached the Lee Oriental Rock Garden in Phoenix, I simply could not believe my eyes.  It is visually almost too much to take in -- fractal in nature, even -- detail within detail.  The above picture does not do the Garden justice, as the lighting is wrong, with the sun behind it all, but you can get the idea.
   Venture through this series of views, starting with "Next View" above and take a look at it!
   Mr. Louis Lee has spent more than 40 years constructing this work of art.  Rocks are employed throughout the structure, forming the majority of the decor.  As at the other rock gardens I've visited, here too I was looking for some deep meaning, so I asked Mr. Lee why he liked rocks so much.  He replied matter-of-factly, "Well, they fit into the places well.  I don't have to measure or shape them, and they are strong."
   Return to the map of "Rock Art in the Valley of the Sun" for more view locations.
