A Seattle Times article has some amazing logging photos including wooden train trestles that defy engineering. Times Article Kinsey Photography I immediately bought the book's 2 volumes that contain some of this collection's photos. There are 2 photos that I'd like to figure out where they were taken. The book cover is:
Woolley Probs

The Trestle Photos are:
Where is this? Them are some big logs!

I'd like to see if I can duplicate these photos to today to see what is left and what the trees look like now 100+ years later. Please reply! Thanks

check out "Logging Railroads in Skagit County". Dave at Easton's had a bunch. When I worked in Forestry in the 70's there were still a bunch in good enough condition to walk on. Now good luck smile.gif One of the biggest was across the Sauk near the confluence with the Skagit. Quite an engineering feat.
