Has anyone come across and/or completed any geo-art? Know of any in our area? Not sure if there's another more common term for it but I'm talking about large map areas where cache owners place their hides in formation to create images when zoomed out on a map. Neat stuff!

Here are a few I've found while browsing gc.com live-map:
Steam Engine
Route 66
Snoopy

And the alien head in Nevada north of Vegas. I guess if you do all the ones along the Paul Bunyan trail you'll have a cool line of smilies in the middle of the state.

Story County, Iowa has "SC," by Team_Schnauzer. Near Perry, Iowa, there is a large "P." A little southwest of there, Iowa Geocachers Organization has "IGO." JackpineSavage has put out a smiley face of puzzle caches southwest of Ames.
