Scenes from the Road

Atlanta is just up the road from Lincoln, Illinois,and today as I returned from church in Bloomington, I decided just to take a quick side trip to see what's in town.

According to the sign near this statue, giant figures like this one used to be arrayed all along old Route 66 to promote various businesses. This particular Paul Bunyan had his ax replaced with a hot dog and was used outside a restaurant named Bunyon's (purposely misspelled to avoid trademark issues with another restaurant).
