That's it Mike. The woods on that side of the road is filled with boo. It is ravine-like and hilly so the big old trees in there hide the boo.

It updates every once and again. Since I installed it a year or so ago they have updated the sat. imagery at least once in my area.

I can tell by my ex-neighbor's cars and construction or there lack of in town and at the zoo. In fact because of the zoo it has to be at least 3 years old. Plus I cut down two oaks in my yard and I should see a gap in the middle of my yard and I don't.

Google maps are pretty good... the Boonut farm is at: http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=en&q=26.23831351,-97.69126956

Looks like the pics are from about 5 years ago.

Just checked this place out yesterday on my way back from a road trip.

Wow! This place is awesome. It is definitly worth checking out, it is very cool. I did get to see some kind of an Inversa, I only found one though. I did get some pictures so I will get them up.

One of the directions on those google maps is off, it ends you up at a dead end in a the Live Oak neighborhood.

I went by the Bamboo Forrest in Prattville on my way home from Florida today. It was an impressive sight to see the massive henon, viridis, and bambusoides growing along the hills there. Huge is the only word to describe the Henon and Robert Young. The only thing that really bothered me about it was the condition of the park. Fallen culms were everywhere with what seemed to be amateur hack jobs with culm tops laying about the trails. Such a unique and beautiful attraction for the city of Prattville. Makes me wish I lived closer because I would jump at the chance to volunteer as a grounds keeper there. But even with that said it was a very rewarding experience to walk amongst the 26 acres of giant bamboo and was once again left in awe of all thing Phyllostachys
