My wife and I are on a mission to visit all the oversized local landmarks throughout Minnesota. This blog chronicles those visits and covers other related topics.

Dala Horse - Cloquet

June 25th, 2011 - Cloquet, MN

Dala Horse

This oversized Dala horse stands in front of Berquist Imports, a Scandinavian gift shop, along the main road through Cloquet. A much larger one exists in Mora, MN. I don't have any information on this one. The statue itself is probably around 12 feet tall. For more on Dala horses, see the Mora post.

Buffalo House

June 25th, 2011 - Duluth, MN

Buffalo House

This giant buffalo on a trailer sits just off of I-35 southwest of Duluth. It's used as a sign for the Buffalo House restaurant and bar... and campground... and sports complex. The Buffalo House is down the road past the giant buffalo. The buffalo itself is not the prettiest giant buffalo I've ever seen. The road ditches around the buffalo were pretty wet, so we opted not to go up close. Instead we took this shot from the road and headed on to Cloquet.
