Past editions of Dinosaur Sightings have mentioned the numerous dinosaur sculptures that can be found in the state of Oregon, but the state’s neighbor to the north can also boast a few dinosaurs. As pointed out by reader Marc Shecter, in 1993 the town of Granger, Washington decided to build a number of steel, chickenwire, and cement dinosaurs to attract tourists. The first dinosaur (a “Brontosaurus”) was unveiled the following year, followed by Tyrannosaurus, Triceratops, and a number of other famous dinosaurs.
