Junk-rassic Park

Last month, we took a nice drive on the country back roads about 40 miles from our little town. Sunny had to do an heating estimate, so we decided to combine the trip and have a nice afternoon together.

A few weeks earlier there had been a write-up in the paper about a retired farmer who is using his metal-working talents and his sarcastic wit to create fun and funky sculptures out of any and every kind of scrap he can get his hands on.

Thus Junk-rassic Park was born.

We found it even with the very poor directions given by the paper (dead-ends mean dead-ends not 4-way stops).
Junk-rassic Park is literally out in the middle of nowhere. There are around 50+ displays.

This young lady stood around 12 ft. tall.

There were probably 20 of these different sculptures standing around a circular fence. Pictured here is John Wayne, "Ike" and John El'weigh' (the best quarterback of all time).

Here is the farmer's witty take on Saddam and Osama bin laden.

You can see how big these were with Grace standing below this giraffe.

I really got a kick out of this one. Check out her goggle bra!


This pumpkin patch was on the way to Pueblo last Sat. It was so much more vibrant than my camera or this picture-taker could capture. Beautiful! That's Pike's Peak in the background.

After enhancing this pic, I like the way it really made the pumpkins pop and the dried 'feed' corn behind the pumpkin field is really neat.

It's All Goggle Bra Good!
(((Chels - 15 days!)))


  1. very innovative.

    The junk and the change the photographer brought.

  2. What a fun place to visit!

  3. What a fun day that was! We have a crazy "museum" somewhat like that over close to my husband's work place - it brings in lots of people and is quite nuts. Some people have weird imaginations!

  4. Great photos. Amazing someone build all of those.

  5. I LOVE these.

    I don't want them in MY yard, mind you - - - but I LOVE them in theirs!

  6. This was so bloomin' interesting! Your photos were really good. The metal sculptures would be right up my alley.

    Have a great week Brenda! And yes, it is indeed all goggle bra good.

  7. Looks like a cute, fun place.

  8. I just never thought of anything being "google-bra" good! : ) So funny you are!

  9. sodoany of them move around at alll????????????

  10. What a fun place to visit. Recently we were in Seattle for few days and had one very clear day. We took a ferry ride just to enjoy the water and loved seeing Pikes Peak. I was wondering about Goggle Bra? Did I miss something?

  11. How fun!
    It's fun to see the different ways people use their artistic talents.
    That would be fun to see!


Thanks for taking the time to visit with me. I enjoy your comments very much. :)
