W eel, a 40-foot turtle in Dunseith, North Dakota, made from 2,000 tire rims
The Mitchell Corn Palace, a turreted palace in Mitchell, South Dakota, decorated with thousands of bushels of corn and other grains
The world s largest red wagon, Spokane Washington s 12-foot-high, 27-foot-long Radio Flyer that can hold 300 children
Elbe, Washington s Hobo Inn, a collection of seven old cabooses converted into motel rooms
