Big Chief and Totem Poles

Big Chieftain still rules over the Big Chieftain Motel on main road through Carrington. Motel parking lot also has three gaudy cement totem poles.

I am happy to report the Carrington, ND Muffler Man is alive and well. I took this photo on 7/26/01. It is in front of the Chieftain Motel and Restaurant. I didn't record the exact address, but it is in the middle of town, and the town isn't that big.
