Giant Trolls of Thomas Dambo

Trolls are still lurking in the fall foliage!

Joe The Guardian.

Interstate Giant Troll

A towering wooden troll, "Joe The Guardian," overlooks the I-88 westbound lanes. Other, non-permanent trolls by the same artist are on display on the grounds of the Morton Arboretum. You can pull off and take a picture of this one without having to pay the fee to get in.
