Today we decided to take the 150km trip to Torrington – I know it may sound like a long way but with open roads and not much traffic, you can make swift progress!
Torrington is a small Hamlet and boasts a large sculpture that can’t be missed of a large 12ft gopher named Clem T GoFur!
As you can see the fire hydrant in front of the sculpture is also painted as a gopher, as are all 11 of the hydrants in Torrington. Below are a few more examples. It does make for quite a cheery fire hydrant!
While strolling around Torrington we also came across an old church and a very friendly cat!
Then we headed to the main attraction – the Gopher Hole Museum. I don’t think being crazy is a requirement to visit but it probably helps!!
