Frozen Dead Guy Shed

I'm sure this isn't the real shed, but there's a photo op shed on the main drag in Nederland with painted cut-outs and a coffin you can pose in. It's on East First Street. Nederland is such a fun little mountain town... worth going to any time of year for Grandpa.

"Grandpa" Bredo Morstoel died in 1989, was frozen, and has been stored in a secret-location shed in town since 1994.
