On the way back from hiking at Mt. Rainier we stopped by this interesting site on State Route 706. It is the workshop and gallery of artist Dan Klennert. Klennert is a sculptor that works in recycled scrap iron and wood. He creates these huge metal sculptures of all kinds of animals. He has horses, elk. fish, giraffe, spider and many other creations. They are very well made and very interesting. All of them are outside and open to the public. Everything is just giant. All over the west we have seen large creatures and sculptures and have stopped to look at many. If you are in the Mt. Rainier area it is worth a visit.
