Lone Pine Posting Tree


This tree, struck by lightning, stands alone along the byway. Messages to travelers, news of the day, and movie bills for the old Marlow Theater in Pine River were posted on this tree. A well known local landmark, it's been memoralized in a beautiful original oil by Crosslake artist, Tom Ottoson. Prints are available at local retail stores. Highlighted in the second set of Paul Bunyan Scenic Byway Playing Cards.
