On Shorpy:
Today’s Top 5

The Doobies

No doubt headed to China Grove!

Heading west toward Lewiston along the Clearwater River

Taken from the bridge on Johnson Road, which is now closed to traffic, so no Google Street view. But here's the spot:

You don't know what you've got 'till it's gone

Lots of big, old-growth logs on their way to the mill. I think I can make out ponderosa pine and Douglas fir, and possibly some western larch and western white pine. Some of those logs, though -- probably the tops of larger trees -- look like they barely make sawlog size (generally 9 inches, I think).

Hardpack Harvest

No doubt headed to Yakima, to be turned into apples and nickels.
