A Visit To The Log Landing

The Mrs., her mother and I took a tour of the logging job and looked over some of the logs at the landing today.
This timber was cut hard in 1940 when a sawmill was set up here. This pit was under the headsaw, and the steam engine that powered the operation sat just to the west (right). We thinned out the hickories in the mid-80's and the black oaks turned on the diameter growth.
Pat is able to climb in and out of the utility vehicle on her own, which is amazing progress in her stroke recovery. Life is good.
