    WW2 bunker.
    View from the ground. And view from the roof. Managed to climb up on it.
    The anti-tank defense and fortified line, aka the Toblerone Line, is visible in the background.

    I talked with the owner of that half-track a few years ago. I believe he was the mayor.

    Experimental Breeder Reactor I (EBR-I) is a decommissioned research reactor and U.S. National Historic Landmark located in the desert about 18 miles (29 km) southeast of Arco, Idaho. It was the world's first breeder reactor. At 1:50 p.m. on December 20, 1951, it became one of the world's first electricity-generating nuclear power plants when it produced sufficient electricity to illuminate four 200-watt light bulbs. Electricity had earlier been generated by a nuclear reactor on September 3, 1948 at the X-10 Graphite Reactor in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. EBR-I subsequently generated sufficient electricity to power its building, and continued to be used for experimental purposes until it was decommissioned in 1964. The museum is open for visitors from late May until early September. Cool thing is that you get to go inside, press on all the buttons and turn all the dials ^^

    And its two heat transfer experimental reactors.

    If what I'm reading is correct, there are now more tanks above sea level to take pictures next to, albeit in Murmansk:

    Jul 23, 2014 - An exceptionally unspoiled M4 Sherman tank, the battle tank the Allies primarily used during the Second World War, was salvaged from an area in the Arctic Ocean’s Barents Sea near the Russian city of Murmansk Wednesday, July 23.

    The well-preserved relic of the M4 Sherman tank was extracted from another wreckage – a US cargo ship sunk during the dying days of the Second World War by a German submarine.

    The US-made M4 Sherman tank was aboard the SS Thomas Donaldson. The latter was then part of the Arctic convoy JW-65. However, the said ship was torpedoed near the shores of the small Russian island of Kildin by U-boat U968 on the 20th of March, 1945. -- https://www.warhistoryonline.com/war-articles/double-decker-bus-used-wwi-transport.html

    Azimuth markings on the turret to enable this Cromwell to be used as fire support from ship's deck. Just one of the fantastic modifications thought up for tank use on and around D-Day.
