Elephant and Hippie Rhinoceros

The rhino is sadly no longer painted like a hippie. Just a normal gray rhino. The hobo across the street still makes it worth it!

Elephant and Hippie Rhinoceros

An elephant and rhinoceros stand in front of Green Fields Trading Co. The rhino has a nice 1960s paint theme going. If you want anything from the hippie era, this is the place to purchase it. Green Fields is across the street from Ruben's giant hobo. It's a great chance to get a two-for-one roadside attraction.
