Even though some roadside dinosaur parks may be going extinct, there are still plenty of funky dinosaur sculptures standing on the side of highways and in front of gift shops. These two, photographed by Smithsonian staffer Erik Washam, stand outside of the Crystal Forest Museum Gift Shop in Holbrook, Arizona. They look a little worn down, but that adds a little something to their appeal.
