Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge

My husband and I recently returned from a trip to North and South Dakota. Way up in the northern part of North Dakota, near the Canadian border, is the area known as the Turtle Mountains. So naturally, the tiny towns in the area have erected sculptures with the turtle theme:

Not to be outdone, the nearby town of Dunseith has its own take on the turtle theme, made exclusively of tire rims. It has the advantage that people are allowed to climb on it.

The true oddball, though, was this giant prairie dog north of the Badlands on Highway 240, south of I-90:
