January 18, 2009


According to the sign, this is the world's largest rocking chair. Not sure this photo is large enough to read the small print, so here it is: 21 feet tall, 14, feet wide, 9100 pounds, hand hewn douglas fir wood built in 1990. It is located in Penrose, CO. We drove by today and I made my husband turn around so I could have my "photo of the day". It sits behind a six foot chain link fence with barbed wire on top. There is no way to get close to it as the building behind it is no longer in business. I was bummed as my husband volunteered to climb up in it so we could really see just how big it is! That would have been a better pic!

Now THAT'S a chair. Sometimes I see things like this and I ask myself, "What possesses a person to build such a thing". Makes for an interesting picture though.

Totally cool! I love stuff like this! I have one of a chair like this from the Kutztown Folk Festival!
