Something interesting I learned about the UDM Memorial Tower while researching it that I can clearly see in the picture, now, is that it was really built as a chimney for the on-site power plant, and that the clock tower is little more than a disguise for the chimney.

the clock tower at UDM actually holds the guiness world record for the tallest combination clock tower smoke stack in the world. there's your useless fact for today...

you can see the tower from the lodge: heading northbound when you cross over the davison, look directly over the expressway as it banks to the left. the clock tower is centered with the x-way. it's much easier to see at night, since it's lit up. and, i guess you'll have to wait until construction season is over. still neat tho...
