This summer we spent few weeks traveling through beautiful Washington State discovering new and exciting places….
One evening we were heading to Laser Show at Grand Coulee Dam when we noticed this really strange fenced garden on the side of a highway…..right at the entrance to North Dam Park in Grand Coulee, Washington.
….of course we had to slow down….and STOP.
…..I got out of my car and in front of me there was this amazing display of WINDMILLS…..really strange….unique….homemade…..WINDMILLS…..over hundred of them…..fenced in this little garden.
….true display of Folk Art…..windmills made from scrap metal pieces….coffee pots…fan blades….garden decorations…toys….stuffed animals….sport equipment….lunch boxes….
The sign read: “GEHRKE WINDMILL GARDEN”
After walking around and admiring these truly amazing windmills we discovered little cabinet attached to the fence with guest book and few flyers explaining the history of Gehrke Windmill Garden and the history of this amazing windmill folk art.
Of course I picked up one of the flyers so I can share the history of Gehrke Windmill Garden with you all.
Do you enjoy driving around looking for neat….out of the blue….middle of nowhere places like this? What is the neatest place you visited or discovered by accident lately?
