Paul Bunyan's "Tall Tale"

Paul Bunyan, The Giant Lumberjack

Paul's Giant Pipe

During the slack season, Paul's men made him a pipe. This wasn't easy. They had to select a special giant hickory tree and haul it in on two flatcars so they could work on it.

Wow - what a pipe. In the early days Paul's smoking never bothered anyone, but in later years he started blowing his smoke west to keep his forest air fresh. This is what caused the smog on the west coast.
