Geese In Flight.

Geese in Flight: Enchanted Highway

Field review by the editors.

Regent, North Dakota

Taller than a ten-story building, weighing nearly 80 tons, Geese in Flight is an eye-grabbing billboard at Interstate 94 exit 72. Its purpose: get people to pull off and investigate. When they do they'll encounter an information kiosk that promotes the Enchanted Highway, lined with similar giant sculptures, that leads from the exit south to the town of Regent. Maybe some of them will make the trip; that's the hope, anyway.

Geeseway to enchantment.

Built by Gary Greff, Geese in Flight was erected in 2001 at a cost, just for the crane rental, of $20,000. The flock of geese, made from oil tank scraps, fly across a conceptual sunburst of pipes over a 2-D version of grass-covered prairie hills. Guinness World Records certified it as the World's Largest Metal Sculpture in 2002.

From 2017 to 2019 the sculpture was fenced off, but Gary struck a deal with the contentious landowner and the Geese were reopened to the public.

The dirt road leading to the sculpture is lined with an additional 200 little geese on poles, all of them cut, bent, and welded by Gary.
