Chisholm’s Iron Man

2016 Out West, Minnesota, Road Trip

This guy is huge! Reputedly the third largest free standing memorial in the country, the Iron Man statue dominates the landscape at a little city park south of Chisholm along US-169. It calls you to spend a moment pondering the role of the individual mine workers in the forging of the US as an industrial giant and beckons you to explore the mine country and learn more. We recognized this landmark from the Minnesota episode of Aerial America and checked off as “Been There” on our Roadside America app. Also found a Geocache here! What fun!

We made it to the Top of the World, or at least the northernmost land mass in Europe, Magerøya Island. On our coach tour we learned much about the natural history and the cultures of this starkly beautiful place.
