I have recently added three days worth of travel to Wisconsin on my Sumoflam Trip Journal. Definitely worth a visit. See the posts beginning on Day 1. Visit other trip journals at http://www.sumoflam.biz/Journals.htm
Just about 4 years ago I took a drive through Algonquin National Park in Ontario. On the trip we also headed west into Burk’s Falls to visit the famed “Screaming Heads” and Midlothian Castle. This was a fascinating trip.
This entire project was begun by school teacher and artist Peter Camani. He is a Secondary School teacher, but has also spent over 25 years constructing Monolith-like sculptures in the shape of giant heads, which are scattered throughout the property. A two-headed dragon sits atop the chimney of his Midlothian Castle and he has a version of the See/Say/Hear No Evils greet visitors. There are more than a hundred “screaming head” sculptures, each one at least 20 feet in height. According to Wikipedia, Camani says he “built his otherworldly creations as a warning about environmental degradation. With his paintings already hanging in such coveted places as the Vatican and Buckingham Palace,he decided to focus his energy on realizing a vision of significantly larger proportions.”
Without further explanation, here is a smattering of some of the photos I took while visiting back there in late September, 2008.
Here is someone after my own heart…travelling the back roads of America. And, on top of that, I think she lives in one of those interesting named towns…Bright, Indiana.
The site is called American Roadtripper, by Celeste Calvitto. Not sure when her last update was, but, if you like some of the unusual of America, her site deserves a visit.
Thanks Celeste for the travelogues
