American Road Magazine and author, Joel Arnold, feature the Paul Bunyan Scenic Byway

Over 100,000 new pairs of eyes will get a glimpse of the Paul Bunyan Scenic Byway this fall. An article entitled, Bunyan Derby, appears in the fall edition of American Road magazine. The magazine celebrates the two-lane highways of yesteryear and the joys of driving them. It is marketed internationally to a wide variety of readers, but is an especially big hit with people between the ages of forty to sixty.

Author, Joel Arnold and his family, spent several days traveling the Paul Bunyan Scenic Byway, staying at Byway area lodging facilities, eating at Byway restaurants and shopping at many stores in towns along the Byway. The result is a broadly inclusive story that captures the Byway’s diverse recreational opportunities, culture and history, and quirky lore that combined to catapult this fifty-four mile route to national designation in 2005, and keeps it fresh and compelling today.

Accompanied by photos of local attractions such as the Pine River Duck Races, the Paul Bunyan Exhibit Room at the Crosslake Corps of Engineers Administrative Building, the A-Pine’s Paul Bunyan in Jenkins and Pequot Lakes’ Bobber Water Tower, the story holds an added appeal for local residents who are so familiar with these Byway sites and events.

The American Road magazine issue including this article will be on display along with lots of other interesting and entertaining Byway things at the Byway’s annual meeting at Marina II in Breezy Point on November 9, 2009, starting at 5:30pm.  Call 218-543-4714 for reservations.

American Road magazine is available on newsstands at some area stores, or visit the American Road website.
