Swiss Sleeping Cow
Large red cow covered in Zs in front of the Swiss Aire Motel in New Glarus.[Richard Stockman, 10/18/2012]
New Glarus calls itself America's Little Switzerland. The cow is one of 15 all-different survivors around town from a year 2000 community art project. For some reason the Zs on its right, south-facing (sunny) side are reversed, creating a backward image photo-op.
