This well organized yarding area run by Saldern Logging Company near Grays River, Washington, demonstrates how logging crews staged their large logs till they could be loaded on railroad cars for a trip to the mill. In the background of detail view 2 is the steam donkey, used to pull the logs by cable from the forest where they'd been cut. Also visible in detail view 2, a bit blurry from movement, is the foreman, who you can see in the first photo in Related Photos below, admiring the work of his crew. -- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon.
