Good Morning Ted and Jody:
Yesterday morning on my way in to Longview I noticed logging activity going on at one of the sites where I shoot cloud configurations over wetlands attached to Silver Lake in the direction of Mt. St. Helens from WA 504 (about the five-mile marker). Here is the shot yesterday morning. You will recognize some of the clumps of trees or the stick in the lower left as being in a number of those photos I have sent before.
Here is a shot from 2014 of what the woodlot looked like prior to the logging activity.
What it looks like now with the machinery stripping and stacking the logs is a lot different. While it was neat to see the machine move and strip the trees of branches
It was also devastating to see the trees gone.
Warmest regards, Ed
PS: I drove by this morning on the way in for a blood draw and the loggers were loading a truck and had made some brush piles.
