From the road

The interesting, the peculiar, the funky! We've seen it all on the road. Here is where we share it all.

Truly a enchanted highway outside Regent ND

While traveling through North Dakota we happened across "The Enchanted Highway " On about a 35 mile stretch leading to the small town of Regent (Population 169) you will find a collection of the world's largest scrap metal sculptures each constructed at intervals of about 5 miles apart. This one was probably our favorite, but we enjoyed them all! We have not met the artist, but look forward to talking to him about doing a story for our show!
