have you ever found anything on the West Fork of the Miller river ?  And one mine off to the side of Big Four, the HooDoo mine.

I've seen lots of photos of logging up the Miller River like this one in the UW Collection but none on the mines.  I've never seen a photo of the Hoodoo mine except in a private collection in Silverton.

Lee Pickett, Woods Logging Company, Miller River, ca. 1931

Most of those old photos up the Skykomish were take by Lee Pickett.  There's a museum full of his photos in Index but it's always been closed when I've stopped by.  There's a new museum in Skykomish with quite a few photos of the area also.

A real kid-attraction at MC is the RR turntable, which still turns, making a most gratifying sound like a rhinoceros on bad acid or sawing a giant's tuba in half.
