The Salamanders Of Columbia

The main streets of South Carolina towns seem to encourage being infested by small animals.  In Greenville they are infested with cute little mice.   In Columbia it is the salamander.

This is actually appropriate as the salamander is South Carolina's state amphibian, and Columbia is the state capitol.

10 salamander statues have been placed along Main St.  During Team Awesomesauce's latest adventure we did a multi-cache that took us on a tour of five of them.

I love finding features of towns like this.  It gives the place a lot of personality.  The following are several photos of the salamander statues we say.  Hopefully someday you will go check them out for yourself.
