North Portland has a famous person standing guard.

Why would he guard the great city of Portland?

It’s Paul Bunyan! And according to his plaque:

Go Oregon. Go timber industry.

And thank you, Paul, for keeping our city safe from giant oxen and other scary creatures.

    Hey, looks like you made it to my part of town. You got some nice shots of Paul! Thank goodness those nostrils are painted on! Stay cool this weekend.

      I’m just glad the nostrils were painted on and not gouged out. That would have been awkward.
