Dinosaur Sighting: Campground “Brontosaurus”

Feedloader (Clickability)

Some of my favorite dinosaur sightings are ones in which a dinosaur was put in a certain place just for the heck of it. Photos from abandoned dinosaur sculpture parks are cool, but unexpected roadside dinosaurs are even better, and such was a photo sent to us by Callan Bentley. Just outside Elkton, Virginia on Route 33 there is a campground entrance guarded by this curious looking "Brontosaurus." While not scientifically up-to-date, it looks like it would have fit right in among the animated cast of a Flintstones cartoon.
