Paul Bunyan Statue
Along Lake Michigan on Michigan's upper peninsula stands this Paul Bunyan statue. Manistique refers to itself as the "Home of Paul Bunyan," a claim made by other historic lumber towns in this part of the country.
The statue isn't a Muffler Man, though the arm and leg positions mimic one. He also isn't the tallest we've seen, standing about 15 feet high. In spite of the double-sided ax the woodsman brandishes, he's a friendly presence on the main highway at the county chamber of commerce.
Manistique is also the site of the famous "Siphon Bridge." Built in 1919, the 300-ft. span used a novel engineering approach that didn't catch on. It's the only bridge in the world below the level of the water that surrounds it. It sounds more interesting than it looks, but if you're in town to see the Bunyan anyway....
