It's a dragon, no, it's a snake...

I don't know what it's supposed to be but it looks like it should be in south Austin. I saw this out in a pasture on my way to Lampasas. There were no houses or barns anywhere around. I would imagine the dozer track it was made from came off while pushing cedar and was in too bad shape to put back on. Dozer track is very heavy, so instead of hauling it off they made this. What a great idea. It is a real attention getter.

Looks like a really weak dragon to me. LOL! I wonder if anyone can spot it exactly...

That's fabulous! I'm thinking you should sell this to the National Enquirer. Thanks for posting, it made me happy to see it.

I have seen that myself and thought it was cool. But not knowing anything about dozer track I didn't know the back story.

How fun. I always love the color of the grasses in winter.

So glad you got a picture of that! We've always been driving by too fast to get a shot, but I love it.

Heehee! I love the field monster! And it's nice to know a bit of the story behind it.

I call it the Lampasas Land Monster. I just saw it for the first time the other day and blogged about it. www.westruth.blogspot.com

(Today, I "googled" it and found this blog.)
