The Enchanted Highway - "Geese in Flight" - Regent, North Dakota

Welcome to North Dakota's Enchanted Highway...
The Enchanted Highway, a 32 mile stretch of highway starting at Interstate 94 (Exit 72) - about 20 miles east of Dickinson, features some of the world's largest scrap metal sculptures. In fact, 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.

Currently, 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 this awesome creation, Regent native Gary Greff, plans on adding even more giant sculptures to the highway in the upcoming years.

Editor's Note: Think of The Enchanted Highway as a fun alternative route to the Black Hills of South Dakota. We all know how boring the drive can be taking Highway 85 to South Dakota. Take the Enchanted Highway instead. It will entertain the kids and give the parents many excellent one-of-a-kind photo opportunities.
