Mount Rush Hour

I finally got the chance to photograph those giant Presidential heads that you can see on I-10 eastbound just past I-45:

Here's a map to where they are, in case you want a closer look that doesn't involve highway speed. The captions read "A tribute to American statesmanship". Have I mentioned lately how much I love having David Adickes in town?

By the way, the question of who the four Presidents are came up in the comments on the picture. I think we all recognize Lincoln and Washington, so it's the other two who might be a mystery. Based on what David Adickes himself said here, the guy on the left is Franklin Pierce. Next to him, based on my own guess, is Martin Van Buren. If you think otherwise, please speak up.

I agree about Pierce, but think the other is Sam Houston, not van Buren.
