Roadside Art - Paul Bunyan

The state of Minnesota has some interesting roadside artwork as I have discovered during my travels around the area.

If you are traveling along Highway 34 between Park Rapids and Walker, Minnesota you will drive through the town of Akeley. It is hard to miss the 25 foot tall statue of Paul Bunyan kneeling next to the roadway. Paul needs a little TLC, like a fresh coat of paint in places.

Paul Bunyan - Akeley, Minnesota


  1. Answer Gaelyn's question. Did you stop? MB

  2. This is one Paul Bunyan that I haven't seen. Have you seen the commercial where he runs into the woods and is calling for Babe the Blue Ox. it's for the new insurance plan MN has.

  3. A fine, larger-than-life Paul Bunyan. It's a very good likeness to the imagine in my mind! ;-)

  4. that is too cool. never been to Minnesota - marking it down now. ( :

  5. The big Paul/Babe statue we saw was in Bemidji Minnesota. I never got a picture.
