There is a special story behind this billboard. Horse pen 40 is a historic natural park with beautiful rock formations. Native Americans once lived here in natural rock shelters and the park is home to ancient cemeteries of the area’s first inhabitants.

Once there, you will find a sign that says, “Leave only footprints. Only take pictures. Don’t kill anything other than time.

The Schultz family own the property and invite you to come and enjoy the natural beauty of Horse Pens 40. To learn more about the iconic brand redesign, here is a short video.
