The Enchanted Highway is found just off I-94 in western North Dakota. It stretches 31 miles between Gladstone and Regent

 

The Enchanted Highway, a 32 mile stretch of highway, features some of the world’s largest scrap metal sculptures. The sculpture “Geese in Flight”, is currently listed in the Guinness World Book of Records as the Largest Scrap Metal Sculpture in the entire world! The highway consists of 6 extremely large metal sculptures depicting geese, deer, pheasants, grasshoppers, Teddy Roosevelt, and even a complete Tin Family. Hotel owner and artist responsible for this awesome creation is Regent native Gary Greff.

Reaching the “Geese in Flight” sculpture at Gladstone, ND we pulled off I-94 and headed southwards along the “Enchanted Highway”.

Gary Greff, undertook this project in 1999 with no experience in artwork and welding … and the results are certainly impressive. His aim was to try and draw people to the town of Regent, believing it would not survive if it based its future entirely on farming.

Our particular favourites were the “Grass Hoppers in the Field” and “Fisherman’s Dream.” On reaching Regent we pulled over and went into a new cafe -come -art store in the main street … it was very trendy and nicely presented … a bit of a surprise in such a remote place.

About The Hoblets

We love to travel both near and far, for us it is all about the experience. You will not find us lying on a beach in Bali, we’re more likely to be found wrapped up in warm clothing walking into a bracing gale along a wind-swept beach in Oregon, or exploring the back streets of a new city.
