Lumberjack's Lumberjack

Since the freeway has been rerouted to bypass Willits, you will have to exit the freeway at either the north end or the south end of Willits and then navigate Main St. Lots of lovely shops on Main St just north of this big guy, so the detour off the freeway is worth the time.

Lumberjack's Lumberjack

Willits has more than one big guy in town. (It also has a Muffler Man). As you come into town from the south you'll pass Lumberjack's Restaurant. There is a large lumberjack greeting you in front of the restaurant. This appears to be a California chain, but I'm not sure if they all have big Lumberjacks out front.

We first saw this model of woodsmen (not a Muffler Man) outside Paul Bunyan's Cook Shanty in Wisconsin Dells, so it doesn't appear to be exclusive to the Lumberjacks chain. We like his strutting style.
