Fergus Falls, Minnesota: Otto the Big Otter

When you live along the Otter Tail River, I guess you need to have some sort of tribute to the otter. This is one big tribute - 40 feet long, in fact. The natives call him Otto.

According to Roadside America, which did much of the leg work for us on this trip, teenagers put it together about 40 years ago. Those teenagers went to a high school which had sports teams named - wait for it - the Otters.

The work of art is located right along the river in Adams Park. It's a bit of a drive from the Interstate, so make sure you do your homework and find South Burlington Ave. on a map before venturing off to see Otto.
