Recommendation by Lemi

The massive scrap-metal sculptures on the Enchanted Highway are a welcome sight after miles of empty horizon. There are seven in total: Geese in Flight, Deer Crossing, Grasshoppers, Fisherman’s Dream, Pheasants on the Prairie, Teddy Roosevelt Rides Again, and Tin Family. Whether you pass at dusk, dawn, or any time in between, they’re always ready to charm you. Self-taught artist Gary Greff made each monolithic installation. He began the project to counter the extinction of small towns such as his own, Regent, North Dakota. The invention of automobiles (and the industry boom) opened up rural communities and out-of-town business. However, it was also the call for quicker routes that threatened to kill these parts. Attractions like the Enchanted Highway invite people to admire the view while saving towns like Regent from getting bypassed by interstate highways.
