We made a quick stop to check out the statue on our way to dinner. The size is pretty impressive! Worth the stop.

A really neat feature just off the road. A good tourist attraction that you must stop and take a snapshot to say you were there. A great way to start or end your stay in Bangor.

It sure is big....kinda something you gotta see when your in the vicinity. To me it is out of place, but you never know when something usual appears out of the blue.

I went on a grey morning in May. Started raining as soon as we arrived. Stayed a little while and left. Maine has a history of lumbering and forestry products for centuries. Nice reminder. Needs a little TLC.

Bangor’s wood industry was strong and many beautiful homes were crafted. The Paul Bunyan statue reminds us of its rich history.
