23 Ha! Ha! Pyramid in La Baie, Saguenay, Canada

The Little White House is an iconic symbol of how the Saguenay Flood devastated Chicoutimi in 1996. But residents of Grande-Baie Sector were equally traumatized. Within a year, artist Jean-Jules Soucy was commissioned to create a commemorative monument along the banks of the Ha! Ha! River. Ha! Ha! Pyramid was finished in 1998. You may wonder why the 69 foot pyramid is covered with over 3,000 yield signs. It is because the French word for yield (céder) is pronounced like s’aider which translates to help each other. Near the top is an observation deck overlooking Ha! Ha! Park plus the river and bay.
