Today’s picture is of the famous pair of statues of Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox, located in Bemidji, Minnesota
Today’s picture has a bit of a story to it.
As some of you know, I work as a Warranty Administrator for Horton, Inc, a maker of fan clutches and fans. As such, our symbol is a polar bear.
And in keeping with that, Horton is a contributor to the Como Zoo, a little zoo attached to the conservatory that you’ve seen pictures of and in from me before.
Anyway, the polar bear exhibit and the polar bears therein are the focus of our contribution and we recently had an event there. As the “default photographer” these days at Horton, I took pictures.
This is one of the two polar bears, “Buzz”
Today’s picture, since I seem to be in a waterfall mood, is the falls at Judge Magney State Park in Minnesota.
Judge Magney is one of the lesser known of the North Shore parks. It’s pretty far up (not far away from Canada) and its not as large or spectacular as its neighbors.
On the other hand, you might ask who Judge Magney was, and why would he get a park named after him?
Well, fun fact, Judge Magney is the guy who helped conceive of and implement the string of North Shore State Parks.
Today’s picture combines #waterfallwednesday and My Friends the Olsons™
This is Running Eagle Falls, in Glacier National Park, Montana. From Left to right are Felicia, her daughter Dani, and her mother-in-law, Scott’s mother Mrs. Olson.
Yes, I am old fashioned enough not to call Scott’s parents by name. This amuses them.
