The Big Walleye

According to the sign, this Walleye was caught by Paul Bunyan after a three day fight. Could just be a "Big Fish" Story. The fillet from this thing would feed a decent sized VT Meet.

Garrison Concourse

When I visited the Garrison Concourse was undergoing restoration. It was built by the CCC between 1936 and 1939 using the "National Park Rustic" style of architecture. It's purpose was to enhance the experience of driving along Mille Lac, the biggest lake in the area. It was listed on the "10 Most Enndangered Historic Places in Minnesota" prior to the restoration. A sign said it is "eligible" for listing on the National Register of Historic Places.
