We stumbled upon Pinkie when we happened to stop here for gas. Goofy fun. Good photo op. You can buy Pinkie souvenirs inside the gas station too ---

This is the second pink elephant we have seen while on a road trip. I get excited about seeing him every time! Fun attraction in the middle of nowhere. Recommended for those who like something a little different when traveling. Great for a photo opp.

It's silly but we keep hearing about it. It's literally at a gas station. Will provide good photo ops if that is what you want along your travels.

This pillar of the community is located at the Shell station in DeForest. Who knows why it is here but it has been here for as long as I can remember!!

The pink elephant is a fun photo for all ages. Hang out with the pink elephant and get pics, then drive across the interstate to get pics with Sassy the Cow.

Very fun game place to take relatives and friends to have their picture taken. The Pink Elephant is a landmark.

Another silly roadside attraction that I could't pass up. A selfie must. The fact that "Pinkie" is wearing glasses makes it so much more fun.
