Tyler Oil Derrick Picnic Area

I took today's photo on my way back home from Shreveport... this small rest area with picnic tables is located just east of Tyler, Texas on IH 20. I remember seeing this place as a kid driving through this area, which was probably 30 years ago, and they appear to have held up rather well. These are made to look like an oil derrick, which is supposed to be a pretty common site around Texas...
