Giant Sitting Lumberjack

The lumberjack is still there -- in need of a paint job, but it's a fun photo.

Paul Bunyan Statue

The Paul Bunyan Statue has changed its look since the 2007 photo on the site was taken. Still there, but very different looking. Dark hair and beard, a cleaner look in the beard, and a tan shirt instead of a red one.

Wow -- a complete head replacement.

Giant Sitting Lumberjack

A large sitting, bearded lumberjack in a red shirt, green suspenders, stocking cap, with a large spoon in his hands (instead of an ax). Would be about 25 feet tall if standing up.
