Around 8 months ago, Bev York noticed that her precious gnome was missing from her Victoria Highlands’ lawn. She thought it was a classic case of hoodlum theft, but it turned out to be something quite different.

Last week her gnome was returned to the end of her driveway and with it, a hard-cover book with photo proof of its road trip down through the United States to Mexico and back.

Here is a look at some of the spots “Leopold, the travelling gnome” hit up on his road trip.  (photos courtesy of CBC )
