Well, we decided that it’s about time to head for home. We started working our way east and south with plans to stop at Houston again and aggravate the relatives. So we got up earlier than usual with great expectations of having a long day on the road and covering as many miles as possible.
Unfortunately we got distracted. We had only been on the interstate for about 30 minutes when we discovered the Enchanted Highway and we just had to check it out.
The Enchanted Highway, off Interstate 94 (Exit 72) approximately 20 miles east of Dickinson, North Dakota, is a collection of the world’s largest metal sculptures constructed at intervals along a 32 mile stretch of highway which extends south to the town of Regent. Artist Gary Greff conceived of, built it beginning in 1989, plans more sculptures, and maintains the project.
