Lumberman's Monument in Oscoda
For years now we've been trying to find a way to scoot over to the area between Tawas City and Oscoda to see our state's famous Lumberman's Monument. This majestic 14 foot tall statue was built in 1931 by American sculptor Robert Aitken. It pays tribute to the men who forged the logging industry throughout our state in the 18 and 1900's. It is located high above the banks of the Au Sable River in the Huron-Manistee National Forest and well worth a side trip to appreciate its beauty. Thanks for the photo, Marge Mandl.
