Bill Swets spent the last 25 years using car parts, farm machinery and scrap metal to build what has to be the most amazing backyard in the world.
The “Swetsville Zoo” boasts hundreds of metal sculptures of all shapes and sizes, most in the shape of animals or dinosaurs. I stumbled onto this cool description of it a while ago and last week we visited. My pictures are below- if you’re in the Colorado area, you definitely need to check it out.
It’s impressive to see what a dedicated life can create. From what I could tell, Bill Swets didn’t do this as a job and there’s no entry charge. He just liked doing it and so kept doing it- for 25 years. It’s pretty incredible.
