The Enchanted Highway – North Dakota…

Friday we drove The Enchanted Highway from Gladstone to Regent in North Dakota.

The Enchanted Highway is a collection of the world’s largest scrap metal sculptures constructed along a 32-mile stretch.

We had a blast driving along and stopping at each metal creation, trying to beat a storm headed our way.

Manning insisted I take this picture of him. Teenage boy! 😁

By the time we got to this Theodore Roosevelt metal sculpture, it was starting to rain. It was like a game to see how fast we could get all twelve of us out of our van, take a photo, and jump back in.

We got our last photo with this tin family just in time. Shortly after we got back in the van, it started pouring down rain. We saw on the radar that hail was headed our way, we drove to a spot in between two hail storms on the radar and waited for the storm to pass. It passed over quickly, and then we started our drive back up The Enchanted Highway.

At the very beginning of The Enchanted Highway, across the interstate, we’d missed my very favorite metal sculpture. We drove back to it and took photos in the sprinkling rain.

This metal sculpture, Geese in Flight, is in the Guinness Book of World Records as the world’s largest outdoor sculpture. It is 90 feet high.

We enjoyed seeing the scrap metal art, and racing the storm made it all the more fun! We were enchanted.
