Dinosaurs and Gila Monster

Metal sculptures, dinosaurs in fighting pose, Gila monster with two old John Deere tractors at a Shell Station.

[Donna and Bill Blum, 02/04/2015]

Eye candy for travelers, not a prehistoric site. Large metal sculptures like this are manufactured in Mexico and exported to the dinosaur-infatuated United States.
