Porter Sculpture Park – Montrose, South Dakota
On the side of the road in southeastern South Dakota, I stumbled upon a unique sculpture park.
I saw the top of these horns from a mile down the road and needed to stop. When I arrived, I discovered this “Bull Head”. It’s 60 feet tall.
When you arrive at the park, you’ll see a path that takes you around to each sculpture. Perfect for a road trip stretch of the legs… and the mind.
Along the path there are little stories and poems that Wayne Porter, the sculptor wrote to go with each one of his sculptures.
Later, I found that Wayne Porter and his sculpture park have been featured on numerous news channels and articles as one of the most unique places in the United States, including TIME magazine’s 50 roadside places to stop.
If you find yourself driving through South Dakota, stop!
