This was one of the Ride Superior stops, we received a towel from the visitor center. The statue is a great photo op. Nice little visitor center and rest stop.

It is difficult to see from the main highway during the day so at night it can be seen but it is more difficult and dangerous. It is on the road into Wawa so is not on the main highway. You can stop near it anytime of day or... More
