Dem Bones: Yard art a la muerte

Humans have long been fascinated by bones. We've been decorating and making cathedrals, guns and museums out of them for years.

But, there's nothing more personal than decorating your yard with the remnants of mammals past. Over the last three months I've seen a number of really creepy, yet very interesting homes. Here are my top 3 ranked by which is most elaborate, beginning with No. 1, this yard near Curt Gowdy State park in Wyoming:




There are also bones to be found in California at this home near Quail Lake:

People even decorate their entire ranches with hundreds of cow skulls, like this place in South Dakota in the Oglala National Grasslands:

The world is a wild and wonderful place.
