Thank you Ken St. Andre of Tunnels and Trolls fame, whose Facebook post made me aware of the troll’s appearance. The link, https://www.outtherecolorado.com/giant-troll-appears-in-breckenridge-and-you-can-hike-to-it/. According to the article, you can start here https://www.google.com/maps/dir//314+Stables+Dr,+Breckenridge,+COfirstname.lastname@example.org,-106.028842,18z/data=!4m9!4m8!1m0!1m5!1m1!1s0x876af650a19d828f:0xa0551144c24ccb6b!2m2!1d-106.0284415!2d39.4813833!3e0?hl=en-US and includes the description:
You’ll find this art installation on East Wellington Trail near French Creek. The trail is beginner-level and family-friendly, but be warned that altitude sickness can still be a concern due to Breckenridge’s high-altitude of 9,600 feet. We’re also told the trail is dog-friendly, so if you’re visiting with the pup, pick up the poo. Respect the area by following the rules of Leave No Trace.
The Danish artist has created 39 trolls around the world and tends to use recycled products for the creations. You can learn more about Thomas Dambo‘s sculptures at https://thomasdambo.com/sculptures/. Thomas doesn’t only create troll artwork based on the link. Here’s a link to his world map: https://thomasdambo.com/dambos-world-map/, which doesn’t appear to show the Colorado troll yet, but the above Google Maps and description should help you find the troll should you want to find it.
Don’t know if I will ever make it to the area, but if I do in the not too distant future, it’s on my Bucket List of things to see.
