Bunyan carving. Paul Bunyan's Sweetheart

The miniature Paul Bunyan Jr. who once stood next to Lucette, Paul's sweetheart, wasn't there when we visited. But there was a statue in the same park, by the bike trail, which I'm assuming is Paul Jr.

The wee Paul in earlier photos is ludicrously small -- like a lawn jockey. Your wood-carved Bunyan find is a good substitute sidekick....

Bunyan's girlfriend. Paul Bunyan's Sweetheart Lucette

I just saw her last weekend -- she still looks great! Paul Jr., however, was nowhere to be found. There was no one close by to ask his whereabouts. There is also a cute log carving of Paul Bunyan that was painted.

If you are using it as a rest stop like we were - maybe make other plans. The bathroom situation is less than ideal!

Some years back, Lucette's head fell off (I think due to a storm). The people of the town decided to put up a new statue of her. They explained her absence by saying she was with child. The new statue has miniature Paul next to her -- Paul's child.
