While I was wandering through Pennsylvania in July, I was able to stop and visit some Whispering Giants for the Grand Tour. Though bummed to find the Giant in Williamsport, Pa. had been removed I did strike gold in Akron, Oh., Dunkirk, Ny., and Sharon, Pa.
Unfortunately, the Sharon giant has a significant amount of rot. There has already been extensive repair work to keep him standing.
The whole underside of his nostrils is rotted out and you can see a gap in the tooth area as well. Hang in there, buddy.
Rotaynah – Akron, Oh:
Of this Giants that I’ve seen so far, Rotaynah has made the biggest impression on me. He’s been my favorite.
He’s huge and has a very striking appearance. There has been some repair work on him, so I hope that helps his longevity.
Wouldn’t you know it? Hammy’s Titan Quest Rally in August used Whispering Giants as bonus locations. During the rally I visited 3 more Giants: Maryland, Delaware and Virginia.
Chief Little Owl – Bethany Beach, De:
Nanticoke – Ocean City, Md:
Virginia Beach, Va:
Some of the Giants that I’ve previously posted about:
This was by far the tallest of the Giants that I’ve visited. I loved his long braids. Read more about my Enisketomp visit.
My very first stop on the Grand Tour.
This brings up my total Whispering Giants visited for the Grand Tour to 9. That’s already better than I thought I would do. I’ve got 2 more that I would like to see (Vermont and New Hampshire) before the Grand Tour ends. I hope I can make it!
