Paul Bunyan

We’ve been thinking about summer camp a lot as of late and, when we were young, we went to a great gem of a place in Bemidji, Minnesota for four straight years in a row. There’s a big ol’ statue of Paul Bunyan and Babe in Bemidji (pictured above) and, according to Wikipedia, that ain’t the only place with such a shrine. Paul and Babe statues reside in Brainerd, MN, Westwood, CA, Del Norte County, CA, St. Ignace, MI, Ossineke, MI, and Eau Claire, WI. There are a bunch of other places that have statues of just Mr. Bunyan, but without his sidekick, what’s the point?

    Noticed you linked my picture from flickr. :-) There are easily 10+ statues of Bunyan in Minnesota alone, scattered across the northern part of the state. I can recall three within 10 miles of eachother in Brainerd, not to mention Paul Bunyan Land which sports a large talking Paul that is about 30ft tall.
