Auburn is another fine Gold Country town near Sacramento, California. Auburn is known for its mining and mandarins. But, for those looking for something random and unusual look no farther than Dr. Fox’s Colossal Statues.
One giant Gold Miner can be seen from the freeway welcoming visitors and passersby. This gold minor embodies the Gold Rush and is the unofficial mascot of the town.
Stranger and slightly more controversial are the naked Amazonian women and their friend in bondage who sit and protect a local auto mechanic’s shop.
I remember driving by these tall muses on my way to a yoga class one day and nearly drove off the road. One just doesn’t expect to see something like this in the middle of an old fashioned gold country town. And from what I understand they were quite controversial at one time.
I have recently come across a few fun and odd photos from a past trip to Maui. I hope you enjoy the random mix of photos. I even managed to find a bulldog!

Hello all, I caught this little beauty near Edinburgh Castle in Edinburgh Scotland. I am pretty sure he was a taxi cab but I would love to just think some normal guy was driving around in a car like this. I mean, wouldn’t you? Seeing little things like this are what travel is about for me. I thought I would share my odd ball photo as part of Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge.
