World's Largest Metal Sculpture
We went through North Dakota too late to see all the beautiful sunflowers with their heads up.
I did find one that still had its petals. :0)
We could see this metal art from miles away and due to the time crunch of traveling we almost decided to zip on by, but we pulled off the highway and snapped a couple of photos (this is where the field of sunflowers was) before going to try to find the rest of the metal art.
It is certified as being the largest metal sculpture. Geese in Flight is 110 feet tall and 154 feet wide! You feel very small standing next to it looking up and at 157,659 lbs I do not think I want it to fall on me.
We decided to travel a little bit of the enchanted highway to see some more of the sculptures along it. The largest grasshopper is somewhere along the route. All we managed to see were the deer before we decided we better move it along. Maybe someday we can go back and see the Pheasants and other things.
