Years ago I travelled along Hwy 101 almost weekly on trips from college in Mankato to my home in North St. Paul. There were a few icons that marked the trail and the big 7up silo was one of them. The barn was aging as was the fading colors of the giant 7up can. On a more recent trip, I noticed a remarkable facelift. Cambria, the natural stone counter surface that is an alternative to granite, has it's manufacturing plant just down the road. They repaired the barn and silo and gave the aging 7up can a whole new look. What a picture perfect roadside distraction that is Uniquely Minnesota!
