When I pulled up at the edge of Noble Park in Paducah the word “Wow,” escaped from me. Even though it was the 10th Whispering Giant I visited, I didn’t expect how striking his appearance would be in person.
Having seen Wacinton in photos from other grand-tourers I knew that I had to see him, too. His sheer size is powerful. Wacinton stands 35 feet tall to the top of his feathers.
The wood appeared in good condition with no immediate signs of rot but there were several beehives attached. Other photos around the web show the Giant as having deep stained coloring but the sun and weather has faded it a bit.
I can officially say that this was my favorite Whispering Giant, unseating Rotaynah.
Though I am sure I will visit others in my travels in the future, the Team Strange Whispering Giant Grand Tour will come to a close on October 31st. It has been a great experience visiting these beautiful carvings and reading their stories.
