I guess a cowboy's got to have seen one or two before to know how they all look. Don't even know what the heck I'm lookin at! Amazon Injun Debils?

Seems like people here in CO sure do put up just about anything for statues/sculptures. There is some weird stuff out there along the roadsides that doesn't seem to have anything to do with CO, the West, or their business.

Mr. Swets, of Swetsville Zoo fame, was hit in the head by a 2 piece wheel he was inflating. After that he had to build dinosaur sculptures out of farm machinery parts.

So all this wierd artwork might be a symptom of brain damage.

Could be... But I don't mind the dinosaurs since they are a part of the earth's history here and there are fossils and remnants of their existences, but the Mayan Indian sculpture things and I have seen a huge Budda statue along 285 and some other things just really seem out of place. Other than it kind of fits with the "wild west anything goes" theme that the mountains seem to attract.

Hey Front Rangers ..... I periodically check out your game and enjoy many of the TAGS posted. My son lives in Loveland and was playing until he wrecked his bike, he's OK but sadly he hasn't replaced the bike yet

ANYWAY - the current TAG is pretty crazy! BUT it's not alone as you can see from this TAG I had to grab in Missouri ....


Maybe they're related ....

However, I do like some of the stuff we find, whether it's art, junk or the result of brain damage!

atokad - speaking of Dinosaurs here's one of the more unique mailboxes I've ever seen ....


I'm headed to Loveland in a couple of weeks to see my son and if time allows AND I can figure out the tough hints you guys use I may try to jump in and play

Good luck TAGGING your Amazon Injun Debils

take care - ride safe!

I think the biggest hint as to this "art" location () is the mountains in the bkgrnd?

Tree line isn't that far up.... perhaps a bit South Park'ish?

Nah.. the gravel is similar - just shot from a different angle. If it was a file pic the movie titles would be different!

Just asking, couldn't see the big gravel bar just on the left, but it may be out of the grabber's frame.

Here's another shot I have. You can see the crack in the pavement/asphalt and that the "gravel bar" was still there, just further to the left.

When I was riding through CoSprgs, there was a massive fog/cloud that just "appeared" at about the Hwy 24 exit, and I thought I was going to get wet. But, as I rode into it is pretty much started to dissipate and it was gone by the time I got into Pueblo. It was a great day for a ride into the high country, 100+ miles to the next Tag.

Only ran into a few sprinkles as I came back down past Conifer.
