On many occasions, friends have made comments like “you find the weirdest stuff” based on photos that I’ll post from my travels. Often, I leave the house with some idea of what I’ll see along my intended route. For whatever reason, things that I read about on websites like Roadside America stay firmly lodged in my brain. I only wish I could call on this superpower for something useful, like making money. Instead, I’m left to use it for my own demented pleasure.
Yet, there are plenty of times when bumbling around that I will come across a serendipitous surprise. For example, pig rock:
I haven’t the slightest idea why there is a pig rock in the middle of nowhere. But as I puttered past, I couldn’t resist pulling a quick u-y to get a look.
Why? Why are you there pig rock?
While I stood in the middle of the road snapping the photo in the evening light, it suddenly dawned on me that it could be a trap. Maybe pig rock serves to draw hapless travelers in for a closer look and some creepy yeti with a penchant for buggery leaps out and carries them off in a burlap sack.
I mean, that is the only logical explanation, right?
Thankfully I passed through while yeti was on his lunch break.
