Very strange indeed. I am always questioning why this place is here but what the.....it is fun. I don't think one should make a special trip down here but if you are driving by then it will worth a stop.

Located just off of the Chehalis Western bike trail in Tenino, you can still see a few sculptures between the trail and the road. Hopefully they will reopen soon so we can all enjoy the full experience of every sculpture in this beautiful countryside. I...More
