Walking Tour of the new North Bonneville, WA Bigfoot Statues, with Larry Lund

BIGFOOT'S BLOG
Mid-July 2012 Edition

Since I'm getting a bit weary of all the serious stuff lately, here is a little bit of fun for you blog readers. Yes, I know, this is the second blog post featuring Larry Lund in a row, but it just so happens that Larry sent in these cool photos today. I can't resist posting them here.

The statues are installed throughout the park in North Bonneville. It is a fun little walking loop with educational features and clever Bigfoot statuary along the way. Enjoy! All of these photos shown here are actually larger than they appear on this blog page, so click to enlarge or right click them and open in another window to view or read them. All photos were taken by Larry Lund, and should be considered copyright by him. They are used here courtesy of Larry.

From Larry:"Here is the first set of photos taken at the park in the Columbia RiverGorge at North Bonneville Washington This is a very nice drive upriver from Vancouver, Washington and was just dedicated on the 6th of July 2012. Two more sets will follow. Hope you all enjoy them. On a side note, for those of you who know of him, John Kirk of Vancouver, B. C. is the son of former Mayor of North Bonneville."


All of these statues were created by Ken Craig of Washougal, WA. 
Here are a few links to his artworks, which you should enjoy, and which go way beyond Bigfoot sculpting:



From THE COLUMBIAN Newspaper:
"The biggest Bigfoot in North Bonneville will be unveiled at 7 p.m. today at the main entrance to the town off Highway 14.
The arrival of the Great Elder will cap — at least for now — a program of regular Sasquatch sightings coordinated by the city's Heritage Trails Committee. A whole family of the legendary Northwest woods inhabitants created by Ken Craig of Washougal has been placed on a quarter-mile paved loop around the community park.
The Great Elder, which is carved of wood, is by far the largest, standing 12 feet tall and weighing 2,000 pounds."

Are these real, verifiable Bigfoot behaviors?

Thanks again to Larry for more cool blog bytes.

Well... There you have it. I've never been to North Bonneville, but I now have a good reason to go, as do all of you fans of Sasquatch Art. You know I am a big fan of Bigfoot statuary. By the way, this reminds me. Here is a link to an old web site I did before this blog began... Click It.
