Here’s The Story Behind The Massive Paul Bunyan Statue In Oregon

Sometimes we get so used to seeing something, that even though it might be extraordinary, we simply stop *seeing* it. This is the case with some of Oregon’s most amazing natural wonders, like the Columbia River GorgeCrater Lake, and Haystack Rock; these are bucket-list places we are surrounded with every day! The Beaver State is also home to some man-made monoliths that are truly remarkable, too, such as the massive Paul Bunyan Statue in Portland. Mr. Bunyan has been keeping a watchful eye over the weird and wonderful Rose City since 1959, and, believe it or not, there’s actually quite a reasonable explanation for this larger-than-life lumberjack.

Did you know the story behind Oregon’s Paul Bunyan Statue? He really is a wonderful addition to the weird and wonderful state we all love so much!
