Dinosaur in the woods. Dinosaurs in the Woods

The first three dinosaurs were on the right side of the road, just past Bamahenge. The fourth was more difficult to access -- because of the ditch on the left side of the road, it was too steep to pull over.

We were expecting these to come before the Bamahenge, but they are just past it. Keep searching -- all four are there!

Dino and dog. Dinosaurs in the Woods

Have to look closely in the woods or you will miss them. There are 4 dinosaurs in the woods actually -- a brontosaurus, tyranno, stego, and tricero. Also a statue of a woman surrounded by columns.

Triceratops attack! Dinosaurs in the Woods

Very cool dinosaurs. The details are incredible, including glass eyes that look real. It was a fun adventure looking for them, and having them all to ourselves to pose with in photographs.

Random rural dinosaur. Dinosaur Statues

We were driving home from a little marina restaurant back in Elberta, Alabama when we took a detour to go window shopping for some boats at another marina. On this back country road, with no homes or anything, there are three very large dinosaur statues spaced out over a half mile sitting in the woods just off the road.

The statutes are very well done, have somewhat fresh paint on them, but seem to be there inexplicably. There's no sign telling about them, but at a quick glance, they look like real dinosaurs walking through the woods.
