Yellowstone, WY

In the 1930’s, a primitive elk horn sculpture graced the lawn in front of the U.S. post office at the Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming. Park rangers had gathered the horns and built the 12-foot sculpture as a tribute to the elk. (Elk, by the way, continue to graze on the lawn of the Yellowstone post office in the present day.) Shown below, a proud park ranger directs our eyes to the top of the sculpture in a photo from the June 1935 issue of Popular Mechanics.
