While visiting Scrappy we noticed some massive odd looking trees in the side lawn of the Sinclair gas station. The pets needed a walk anyways so we leashed them up and went to investigate. They appeared to be large concrete looking trees with skulls and bones embedded in them. There were no signs explaining what we were seeing, but they were quirky and weird and we like that sort of thing.
When we went inside to grab some drinks I asked the cashier what the story was. Turns out they were built for a water park, but the water park ended up not happening and the owners of the gas station bought them instead. While being transported they broke in multiple places so that’s why they were in pieces. So they set them up, added some benches and a roadside attraction was created.
I’m not sure what kind of haunted water park was being built that was decorated with creepy trees and skulls, but sounds like a place I would visit!
