This time of year makes Mankato, Minnesota a very popular place. It's currently Minnesota Vikings training camp time and that means, for Twin Cities residents, a trip down U.S. Highway 169. Along the way, as you enter Mankato from the north, you'll see the venerable Happy Chef restaurant with this giant statue outside. Make a stop for a meal and be a part of Minnesota's obsession with huge sculptures.
