Wordless Wednesday

Attitudes have changed in the 45 years since this photo was taken.

My uncle Raymond Nelson is the young man in the center.

LOVE it! I love old photos like that. My grandpa logged way back when. Entire towns were built up over the industry and then destroyed as logging became un-"PC". But men like that helped build our country. Amazing. :) Thanks for sharing!

Beautiful picture with great memories I assume! Such a huge tree! Thanks for visiting! I'm sorry you are so far away from your family. My brothers moved off and I don't see them much at all. That was a pic of me with my bf's family.

Mammoth tree! Wow. You have cute cats. I was laughing during your Starbucks post about spilling on your shirt. I seem to have that problem a lot lately, especially when I'm wearing white. sigh.

I don't know that many sawmills have the ability to process a tree that large these days.

That is a very impressive tree. But yes, attitudes do change, and we have a very different ways of admiring such trees.
