At first I wasn't sure if this was worth the time to get off the highway to drive by and see or not, but it was worth it. Only a few minutes from the exit. It was rather impressive in person. The park and area...More

This was the highlight of my day, seeing the egg. It's really neat and super fun to take pictures in front of! A really cool stop to take on a road trip to Colorado.

I don't have any Czech heritage, so I don't know much about the history behind painted eggs, but there was a sign explaining it some. Anyway, the egg was something to see. We stayed about 15 minutes, taking pictures from different angles because the sun...More

This was very interesting, "huge". Impressive. Don't miss seeing this. The town is not very big, this is worth the 5 minutes it takes to go there.

This is really a unique sight! Its huge, and beautiful to look at. Its just a short drive off the interstate, well worth the detour.

But unfortunately, this wasn't laid by an ostrich. It's fiberglass. Still, if you're in town, you've got to see the egg. They are very proud of it!

Not much posted about the history and the significance but the giant egg is there and looks nice. Worth seeing if you are in town.

I drove south of the Interstate specifically to see this egg. Unfortunately, it was dusk and the egg was hard to see although there was enough light reflection for a picture. I think the townsfolk should probably light it up for at least a portion...More
