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
My history is steeped in logging. I always wondered about so many turnips on the menu.
That is some grocery list! Congrats on 500!
