Oddity on the Road to Lyons

Our plan was to have dinner in Lyons, Colorado before going  up higher to Allenspark. The road between Lyons and Boulder goes through a wide valley. There were folks on a hiking trail, but my thought was that the view really did not change as you walked through  rocks (not boulders) and tallish grass for miles.

As we drove along, we happened by this sculpture in a trailer park yard:

Yes, they are electric irons! And there are a lot of them! If I counted correctly, there are twenty on the bottom row.

There may well be a story that goes with this display, but we needed to "press" on.

I'm not sure, but I think it may have something to do with the "Flatiron Mountains" just west of Boulder...
