Steve Canyon by djohn9 Steve Canyon by djohn9
In 1947, locals changed the name of Idah­o Springs' Squirrel Gulch district to Steve Canyon, in honor of a patriotic cartoon character from the 1940s.

Three years later, the U.S. Treasury Department financed this 40-foot-tall limestone carving.

A plaque for the statue pays tribute to "all American cartoon characters who serve the Nation."

I think it's defiance in the face of evil.
