Whispering Giants – My Tour

I’m doing the Whispering Giant Tour this year.  This tour involves getting your bike and a rally flag in a picture with the Whiwhisperinggiants_300spering Giants.  They are located in almost every state and in Canada.  The sculptures honor Native Americans and native peoples of other countries.  This link provides the locations.  This link is to a newspaper article about the tour.  I have posted pics below of the Giants I have visited thus far.  

Clicking the pictures will enlarge them on your screen.  This will allow the rally flag numbers to be seen.


March 2015
Peter Wolf Toth’s Gallery in Edgewater, FL

I had the honor of meeting with the artist, Peter Wolf Toth, when I went down to Florida for the 2015 Daytona Bike Week rally.  Meeting him and seeing his gallery was one of the highlights of the trip.  I didn’t get my bike in the pic because there was nowhere to park where I could get the gallery sign in the pic.

The Giant is by my left arm in the background.  As it was July 4th, there were a lot of folks in the park.  Riding up on the sidewalk was not an option that day.

This is Giant # 51 in Akron, OH.

I couldn’t get my bike in the picture from the street, so I had to ride up on the sidewalk.

September 2015 – Signs at the Cherokee Indian Reservation in NC

One sign indicates that I was leaving the reservation.  The other sign is a welcome sign at the reservation’s visitor center.

This is my last bonus point achievement. According to the rules,
“A Massachusetts state flag hung from any flagpole where the flag is clearly discernible.”  Okay, I wasn’t able to make it to Massachusetts, so I bought a little state flag and a little flag pole.  The flag, pole, and my rally flag are clearly in the picture with my bike.  So, I believe I earned the 5 points…
