Winlock, Washington: World's Largest Egg
OK, it's actually the world's largest statue of an egg. It's not like a chicken laid this the other day, and the city fathers of Winlock, Washington, got the paint brushes out.
Even so, that's some egg. It's also a reason for the traveler to drop into Winlock. For those of you planning a trip to the region, Winlock is only a few miles off Interstate 5. (If you go east, you'll wind up at Mount St. Helens.) Go west into town, and look to your right from the main road. The egg is in a small park a block away. There's no explanation for the egg, and it's fenced in.
We didn't spend any money in Winlock, but we did visit it ... so the egg's mission was accomplished.
