Danger! Warning! Humongous T-rex will eat your popcorn!! And then... YOUR HEAD!
Oh, the giddy expectation one gets when planning a trip to South Dakota. And NO trip to SD is complete without venturing to Wall Drug.
It had been 8 years since we last stepped foot onto the antique planked walkways, had a tasty cowboy lunch and 5 cent coffee. So we were completely surprised to find a whole new area to the back of the main building, which included this guy here.
Every 10 minutes or so, he menaces, growls, smoke billows, kids drop their popcorn and run for their young lives. I've seen it. Frankly, I was inches away from joining them.
(BTW - I love that there's a "Wall Drug, SD - U.S.A." street sign right in front of him, so if you're rattled to your core by his roars, you won't forget where you are. Or maybe it's for his benefit?)
