Trees of Mystery
The Two RV Gypsies: Full-Time RVers
stopped at Trees of Mystery in Klamath, California, and spent a few hours admiring the different trees, riding the aerial tram, and seeing some tall tale sculptures.

June 14, 2015

The Indians called this "A place of Spirits."

There were giant Paul Bunyan and Babe statues in the parking lot. This is the third time the two RV Gypsies have come across a Paul Bunyan statue. This one is the biggest of the three, at 49 feet 2 in and 30,000 pounds. The one is Oscoda, Michigan is only 13 feet tall. The one in Bimidji, Minnesota is 18 feet tall and weighs 2.5 tons. All can be seen by using the TOC button above and choosing the letter P for Paul, or by choosing the Big Oddities button.

Below: Paul Bunyan was carved with a chainsaw. As children sat by or walked near Paul Bunyan and talked, Paul responded in a very loud voice to whatever the children said, which of course, caused a surprise reaction from everyone.
