Giant Knight In Shining Armor

Leavenworth, Washington

190 Hwy 2

Der Ritterhof (Knight's house) Motor Inn in Leavenworth sticks with the small mountain town's Bavarian theme. In sticking with its own name, it commissioned the creation of a giant knight in the form of a suit of armor. The 24-foot-tall sculpture was the 1990 creation of artist Primo Villalobos.

It's proven to be a popular tourist draw as visitors want to get their photos taken next to the knight. During just the ten minutes I was there, a half dozen individuals and groups took their turns posing with the knight.
