Spirits of Iron Sculpture Park

The two RV Gypsies stopped at
Spirits of Iron Sculpture Park
near
Mount Rainier National Park
June 29, 2015 & July 18, 2013

The Recycled Spirits of Iron Sculpture Park is located along State Route 706 on the way to Mt. Rainier National Park, 3 miles east of Elbe, Washington. The two RV Gypsies highly recommend everyone stop at this sculpture park on their way to Mt. Rainier. (It closes in October for the winter.) This park has been featured in the Disney movie "America's Heart & Soul" and "Recycled Spirits of Iron" on You Tube - sponsored by Mt. Rainier Visitor Association.

The fabulous metal horse sculpture's butt was made out of horseshoes - see the close-up photo of the horseshoe butt in the photo to the right of the below horse. The items used to make these fabulous sculptures are amazing. Dan Klennert surely is an amazing artist/sculptor with a great imagination.

Walking beside the work shed, the two RV Gypsies saw a small RV, and were surprised by what was in the window of that RV. How cute and imaginative!

Then the two RV Gypsies went into the backyard and saw lots more interesting sculptures.

about Dan Klennert

When the two RV Gypsies were here in 2013, the talented, imaginative artist, Dan Klennert, and his gal were sitting on the porch outside the gift shop. The two RV Gypsies stopped to talk to him and learned that he has been doing this creative work for 41 years. He was intelligent, friendly, and fun to talk with. Read the photo above for more details about this amazing artist.
