Coeur D'Alene, Idaho • A U.S. flag with a light shining on it that someone attached to the top of a large ponderosa pine tree on Fourth of July Pass will remain because it's too dangerous to remove, the U.S. Forest Service says.
"We have no idea how it got up there," Idaho Panhandle National Forest spokesman Jay Kirchner told the Coeur d'Alene Press (http://bit.ly/1qeDQ9V) in a story on Tuesday. "It's on the tip-top of the tree and I can't imagine it would hold the weight of a person holding onto it."
The flag and light attached with duct tape is atop a tree next to Interstate 90 in northern Idaho. The flag is illuminated at night, making it easily visible from the highway.
