Dalton Road. About one mile from the Cowan Lake State Park campground entrance.

[Denis McCune, 08/28/2017]

This home-built horror, maybe 15 feet tall, apparently stands year-round (or at least during the non-freezing months). We appreciate its claw-like fingers, flat-top haircut, and poorly aligned eyes.
