In the town of Superior, Wyoming, near Rock Springs, there's a mural that reflects this resilient spirit. It's painted on a large, flat rock face along the Wyoming railroad line. And bears giant images of reclining nymphs, topped by Japanese characters that read, "People of the world, watch my future."
