Montana Highway White Cross

Posted on | Shot on at 15:38:26

The American Legion has been putting up white crosses to mark highway fatalities in Montana since 1953 according to the state website as a roadside safety program. This cross on the Roundup Road headed out of Billings also seems to be a memorial to someone with a bouquet of plastic flowers at the base.
