Christmas swag in Bagley, MN

Garland from sidewalk to sidewalk in Bagley (Clearwater County)

Our first stop on the Checkpoint MN scavenger hunt was a visit with Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox in Bemidji. All along the scenic route, we enjoyed the small-town charm of Christmas decorations on lampposts.

I was surprised by the wide variety of shapes: lots of candles, candy canes, and trees, but also a few poinsettias, a stained glass window, Rudolph, and a toy soldier.
