500 miles, and the lumber industry

Hit this milestone this week

Learned a lot about the history of logging in this area.

Many parts of this remote forest were heavily logged in the early 20th century.

One challenge was that the area was so remote that it was hard to get the logs out – they built rail roads for that

The work involved in cutting down these trees and moving them is astounding

The remnants of the rail lines are often used for trails (like the AZT) or roads.

A few more from the last few days

And a few flowers

Rolling along,

Junco

  1. My history is steeped in logging. I always wondered about so many turnips on the menu.
