This is probably the only metal dinosaur you will see today!

Since some have asked, a nearby small community has bolstered its image and cleaned up its act over the last several years by taking on a dinosaur theme. A pond by the river, which had been a serious eyesore and rather dangerous looking place, has been cleaned up and rehabilitated and turned into a dinosaur park. Several dinosaurs "live" in its waters and along its shore, inviting folks to stroll and families to picnic. This dinosaur here is another addition near the freeway exit to the town.

Really neat metal shot, Katney. Glad you shared the story behind it. It's a wonderful thing when a small community turns an eyesore into something special ~ bravo their ingenuity!

Paulie said...

Also, having "exhibits" like this draws tourists to the town and that means it's better for the economy. Neat idea!

JC said...

That is so cool and I bet the town gets visitors from people who drive by, spot the dinosaur and decide to stop for a while. Great choice.

Katney,
This is one big metal. Everybody can see it from far away. Does it have a body or just a frame.
Btw, I hope you are no longer dizzy:))
