Mountain Monarchs


Recently I visited the 180,000 sq. foot Cabela’s retail location in Kansas City, Kansas. Cabela’s, unlike most retailers do not utilize all available space for retail displays. Each store includes a huge amount of space allocated to the display of mounted specimens of animals and fish. A considerable amount of space is taken up by large aquariums housing many different species of fish. Also featured at each location is a huge bronze. The bronze sculpture, Mountain Monarchs, featured at the Kansas City location is of three large mule deer bucks.

This photograph is a combination of the bronze superimposed upon a Pennsylvania sunset.

Unique image. Looks like the blair witch got to them and turned them into bronse ;)

Poor things.

That was the coolest place to visit and shop. We were there in 2001. I took some pictures in there too but they only came out fair. I would love to go back again.
Nice technique of the Penn. sunset and the bucks.
