Standing at 22-feet tall and wearing a yellow shirt, blue jeans, black boots, and a gray cowboy hat, this giant is a roadside attraction that is hard to miss. And you don’t have to miss him! If you’re taking a road trip on I-84, a short detour off the highway will take you right to him.

Don’t worry about entering into a larger-than-life shootout with this giant cowboy. There’s no gun in his holster (there isn’t even a holster) – he carries a faded stop sign instead! Why a stop sign? Really, I have no idea. But it’s less threatening than a giant gun or lasso, so I’ll take it.

Today, he is a little less country and advertises an RV park, not the gas station. But if you look closely at his chest (not that I was looking closely at his chest) you can stills the the faded remains of the old Phillips 66 logo imprinted on his shirt.
