I had not expected to find a dinosaur in the woods of Mount Kisco, New York, but there it was. While going on a little hike I saw the big, purple head of the dinosaur sticking out from behind a storage shed. When I got a better look I saw that it was a big playground toy meant to be ridden by children and it must have come from the nearby park. I had expected to see a few squirrels and birds on my hike that day, but not a purple dinosaur!
