Join us for a virtual road trip down North Dakota’s Enchanted Highway! A 32-mile stretch of highway known for the world’s largest scrap metal sculptures may not sound enchanting, but just wait until you see some of these works of art.
Sculptor Gary Greff Gary began his first artwork, the giant Tin Family, in 1990, and is responsible for all seven of the sculptures along the route. Of course, you didn’t think there would be sites this cool without geocaches, did you?! Keep reading to explore four geocaches along the Enchanted Highway.
- Hook, Line, and Sinker
The Fisherman’s Dream is one in a series of hand made metal sculptures created with the hopes of increasing traffic on this lonely road. Each scale was cut one by one to help make these fish look detailed.
- The Enchanted Highway: The Tin Family
The Tin Family was created in 1991. It is one of the earliest sculptures on the Enchanted Highway, and one of the most whimsical!
This geocache is named for the town it resides in. Depending on where you begin, Regent, North Dakota is either the start or end of your 32 mile Enchanted Highway adventure!
- The Enchanted Highway- Pheasants on the Prairie
Pheasants on the Prairie took over three years to complete, and was finished in 1996. The rooster stands over 40 feet high and 70 feet long. The Hen is slightly smaller, standing at 35 feet tall and 60 feet long. The two adorable baby chicks are 15 feet tall and 20 feet long.
- The Enchanted Highway: Teddy Rides Again!
Constructed in 1993, Teddy Rides Again is one of the final sculptures on the highway to Regent, North Dakota. This sculpture depicts former US president Theodore Roosevelt on his trusted steed.
