Paul Bunyan's Turkey BasterPublished by hmn_admin on Thu, 2015-08-20 16:40
There are a lot of very interesting things to see on the highways and byways of Minnesota! Almost everything that is really big in our state has been attributed to Paul Bunyan or to Babe the Blue Ox. The U of M plays a football game to win Paul Bunyan's Ax and we've had a photo of Paul's bobber in an earlier post. The water tower in Moose River has always looked like a giant turkey baster to me! The allusion was a little more clear before they put the cell phone towers on the top, but the talk still looks like a bulb and the base looks like the tube on the baster. I remember trips by car from the Twin Cities to Crane Lake with my family when I was a teen. When we passed the turkey baster, we knew we were half way there!
