Claude Bell was a man who could dream bigger than most men can imagine. Two enormous concrete dinosaurs that command the Mohave desert town of Cabazon, California are silent witnesses to his hard work, persistence and vision. The desert dinos were featured in our Spring 2011 American Road Magazine column World's Largest Things. In every issue, author and artist Erika Nelson salutes the king-sized roadside attractions that adorn the American Road.


Erika Nelson is the creator of the World's Largest Things and travels the country with her bus full of the World's Largest Collection of the World's Smallest Copies of the World's Largest Things telling the stories of America's wonderful, king-sized roadside attractions. As a matter of principle she has visited every attraction that she has miniaturized and collected.
