In west-central Wisconsin, where rolling bluffs and scenic valleys make up much of the landscape, we visit a homemade labor of love this week at HighwayHighlights.com. The Wegner Grotto, built between 1929-1936, is a curious roadside attraction worth a stop.

In DeForest, WI, off the side of the interstate is a life-size pink elephant wearing hipster glasses. I know you were wondering…. Yes the elephant was wearing those glasses before you were born. He also likes indie music, PBR in a can, and rides his Schwinn around town while silently judging you.
The pink elephant was made by the F.A.S.T. Corporation down the road in Sparta, WI. It’s a classic Wisconsin roadside oddity that begs a stop for the weary traveler. Check him out.
While in the area: Madison! Travel to the south about 15 miles to the state’s capital to learn a little history about the poor man’s Minnesota. Time your trip with Halloween for a real throw-down.
