We just took a ride to the head of Powell Lake in our new boat. Here she is next to one of the crew boats at the logging dock. She looks like she really belongs with the working guys. At home in our cabin, we can hear the crew boats heading up the lake at about 6:30 am. Then around 5:00 pm, we see them heading back home.
We found five boats up at the head of the lake. It was close to quitting time, but after we arrived, we saw four logging trucks dump their loads into the log pond. We passed the tug hauling a boom of logs to the south end of the lake. He left the head at about 2:00 pm and didn't pass our cabin until 9:30 am the next morning, and he still had another 10 miles to go. That's one long run!

Those bundles sure make a huge splash! -- Margy
