The logged in completed.

Correction:  I obviously did not proof read my title.  I intended to say 'The Logging is Completed."  I figured out how to edit a blog, but apparently the title is not editable.

Yesterday  was the final day of logging operations.  There is still  one piece of equipment to be picked up by a low-boy.  After that we will order gravel delivery to finish our road rehabilitation.  We have been very pleased by the process.  The loggers were all very courteous to us and a pleasure to be around.  Every single one of them drove a large pickup truck.  Every truck had a large dog to guard the truck.  If we approached the pickup the barking would begin.  A voice would float down from the equipment operator for the dog to be quiet and then the playing would begin.  One dog in particular loved to play fetch.  All received pets and ear rubs. 

The logs are down, but have not been dragged to road and stacked yet.

It is getting too wet to work and there was a several day  interruption in the work to allow for things to dry out.
See how the forest is more open now.  The smell of all that freshly cut douglas fir was heavenly.

All and all a stellar experience.  Now we need to schedule some Casita time, but a few obligations may keep us home for a bit.

  1. Don't know you guys, but we like where you live! For a few years we lived in our dream home in a pine forest outside of Butte, MT. Until my company closed up shop up there and sent me to Phoenix!
