2012 - Fremont Troll, Seattle, WA

While visiting Seattle, WA during my summer geocaching pilgrimage, we stumbled upon the Frement Troll. It is located under the north end of the George Washington Memorial Bridge, also known as the Aurora Bridge. Molly claims to have heard of this troll and said she's seen pictures. I doubted her somewhat until she pulled out her copy of Ripley's Believe It Or Not showing an article written about the attraction.. sorry I doubted you Molly.

2011 - Orange Dragon, Ames, IA

Cruising through Ames, IA, on my way to Lincoln, NE, I ran into Orange Dragon, by Ames native Dave Johnson.  Located on the southwest corner of Ames City Hall, this artwork was originally placed as part of the Art Around the Corner program.  The city of Ames eventually bought the piece from the artist for $3000.

2009 - Don't Text and Drive

Proof that you shouldn't text and drive. This poor witch crashed her broom into a power line pole. I stumbled across this fun little display while on a road cruise to Sibley State Park. If I remember correctly, it was located at some point on highway 23 between Paynesville, MN and New London, MN.
