Standing guard over the Lone Steer Motel/Cafe/Lounge just outside the city of Steele, North Dakota, resides the World's Largest Sandhill Crane. Though towering at 40 feet tall and 4.5 tons, this giant crane can prove to be quite elusive to the casual observer. To view this wonderful creature in it's natural habitat take the Steele exit (exit 200), off of I-94 and turn (south) into the Lone Steer Motel...the crane is situated toward the back of the motel on the I-94 side. The World's Largest Sandhill Crane was completed in 1999.
