Wisconsin is weird — Jurustic Park

No, I didn’t spell that wrong.  Jurustic Park and Jurassic Park are two completely different things.

Pretty sure this Jurustic Park find was called Lone Cat Hunter.

Jurustic Park is located outside of Marshfield, Wisconsin.

Fall Dragon at Jurustic Park.

You might be forgiven if you think Jurustic Park is a collection of metal sculptures.  The artist — Clyde Wynia — will be sure to set you straight and tell you that the park is a collection of Iron Age fossils dug out of the surrounding McMillan Marsh.

One of the many spiders at Jurustic Park.

Clyde is a retired (or, as I like to say, recovering) attorney and he often takes visitors on impromptu tours of his collection.

Clyde has a dry sense of humor, but boy is he funny.

Some fishing cats at Jurustic Park.

Just don’t be a prude.  Many of the fossils still have some anatomically correct bits and pieces, and Clyde can tell some off-color jokes (for example, he invited me to sit on a vibrating bell….for free!).

Froggie roctology exam at Juristic Park.

Admission to the park is completely free and it is well worth a visit.

She is a voracious reader of young adult dystopian fiction and watches far too much bad tv. She loves pretty much anything to do with zombies, and doesn’t think there is anything weird about setting an alarm at 6 am on a weekend to stumble to a pub to watch her beloved Chelsea boys. Robert has had many professions, including a chef, a salesman, an IT guy and most recently, a stay at home dog dad. He speaks Italian and hopes to learn Spanish on this trip. He loves nothing more than a day spent sailing, hopes to do more scuba diving, and rues the day he introduced Lisa to football (i.e., soccer).
