Logger on a log.

Logger and Wannigan

A life-size (copper?) statue of logger Whitewater Slim on a raft of logs stands in front of a wannigan, sort of a floating kitchen/bunkhouse. It's part of an interesting display that describes the logging days on the Big Fork River. Above the display there is a life-size eagle (three feet long, with a six-foot wingspan) at the top of a streetlight.
