The Enchanted Highway


The Enchanted Highway is a 32-mile stretch of highway starting at Interstate 94 (Exit 72) in North Dakota, about 20 miles east of the town of Dickinson. The display features some of the world’s largest scrap metal sculptures. In fact, the sculpture “Geese in Flight,” is currently listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the “Largest Scrap Metal Sculpture” in the world. It weighs in at 78 tons.

The Enchanted Highway consists of 6 extremely large metal sculptures depicting geese, deer, pheasants, grasshoppers, Teddy Roosevelt, and even a complete Tin Family. The artist responsible for these creations is Regent, N.D. native Gary Greff, who created his first sculpture in 1993. Greff, who is self-taught as an artist, plans to add even more giant sculptures to the highway in the years to come.

The photographs you see this week are courtesy of my friends Jane and Francois Robert, who on any given week, can be found in any part of the world in search of the beautiful.
