Paul Bunyan

I've passed this "Paul Bunyan" figure several times traveling through northern Michigan's Upper Peninsula. The last time I saw him was July 2012. He seems like some kind of hybrid or imitator of the Muffler Men Bunyan variety; his hands are in the standard position but his beard and hair are fuller and overall he's more detailed and realistic than the standard M-Man.

He stands in front of the Schoolcraft County Chamber of Commerce in downtown Manistique along Highway 2, the main (i.e., only) road traversing the UP logging country along the northern shore of Lake Michigan.

We include this style of lumberjack in our Bunyan Muffler Man tracking -- technically not originating from the same molds or manufacturer, but has enough characteristics.

This Paul Bunyan has been looking out over the Upper Peninsula of Michigan for a long time.

Paul Bunyan. I've lived here 10 years and it has been at its current location at least since then. I remember passing through in the early 70s and seeing it, but in a different location, as the road it is on now didn't exist then.
