Another great photo op along the Paul Bunyan Scenic Byway. If you didn't bring your two-headed axe, just use whatever's handy!

Paul Bunyan

A new Paul Bunyan statue is located in Pequot Lakes. This statue is 12'8" tall including the 5" base. The statue is made of steel, foam and a fiberglass exterior.

The statue was created by Josh Porter (Avalon Studios) for Rick and Leah Beyer (owners of the A-pine Restaurant and A-Pine Express) and is between the two A-Pine Businesses in a little park area created for the Bunyan. Paul is ready to welcome everyone to the gateway of the Whitefish chain of lakes and the start of the Paul Bunyan Scenic Byway.

A photo montage of the process used to produce this new Paul Bunyan is online at under the portfolio section.
