Myths, Folklore, Scary Stories, Ghosts, Monsters and Legends in Minnesota
The mischievious, monkey-like argopelter that throws sticks at people; Native American stories about the wendigo, a ghoulish, insatiable, man-eating manitou that was sometimes a mutated, cannibalistic human; tales of the giant lumberjack Paul Bunyan, whose statue in Brainerd is animated (there are also statues of Paul and his blue ox Babe in Bemidji); the sad tale of Wenonah (also spelled Winonah, Wynonah or Winona and meaning first-born), who used a knife to take her own life near Fort Snelling when, prompted by an envious woman, a jealous suitor falsely condemned her during the Feast of the Virgins; the unexplained geological mystery of the Devil's Kettle waterfall and pothole; ghostly footsteps heard on the Washington Avenue Bridge in Minneapolis (the poet John Berryman and others have leapt to their deaths from the bridge); the spiritual significance of the pipestone quarries in Pipestone National Monument, where the clay is stained reddish by the blood of bison (buffalo) eaten by the Great Spirit, where the first man and woman were created from the clay, where thunderbirds nest and where, beneath granite boulders, the spirits of two Native American shaman women called Tsomecostee and Tsomecostewondee dwell and may still be consulted by those who go there for their pipe clay; and the story of Winona, who leapt to her death near the town named after her (it was once called Keoxa) because her father would not let her marry the man she loved (are all Winonas unlucky in love?), are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Minnesota.
America is one of the largest, most most varied and most interesting countries in the world. Being familiar with the USA is as important in the modern Grand Tour as familiarity with Europe.

Other American mainland sites that should not be missed if a visitor to America, or an American for that matter, is to be regarded as well travelled, include The Disney resorts, the Florida Keys, Niagara Falls, rodeos, Route 66, the California coastline, Mount Rainier National Park, the Adirondacks, the Appalachians, the plantations and bayous of the Mississippi Delta, Marvellous scenery and sea life in Kenai Fjords National Park, Yosemite National Park, the Ozarks, Yellowstone National Park, the beach at Waikiki in Hawaii, Native American nations such as the Navajo and the Hopi, Mount Rushmore, the Arctic wilderness of Alaska, the Everglades, the Grand Canyon, the Okefenokee Swamp, Mount McKinley and fabulous wildlife in Denali National Park, the wild west town of Tombstone, Hawaiian volcanoes such as Mauna Loa, Bryce Canyon and Glacier Bay National Park.
The United States of America are so enormous that even most Americans cannot "know" all of their own country. Even visiting every state would be a major undertaking. It is possible, however, to visit the iconic places known all over the world, especially through Hollywood movies. Good luck on your travels.
