Dinosaur Sighting: Granger’s Dinosaurs

Feedloader (Clickability)

Past editions of Dinosaur Sightings have mentioned the numerous dinosaur sculptures that can be found in the state of Oregon, but the state's neighbor to the north can also boast a few dinosaurs. As pointed out by reader Marc Shecter, in 1993 the town of Granger, Washington decided to build a number of steel, chickenwire, and cement dinosaurs to attract tourists. The first dinosaur (a "Brontosaurus") was unveiled the following year, followed by Tyrannosaurus, Triceratops, and a number of other famous dinosaurs.
