Vintage logging – skidding
Each Saturday morning I review 10 vintage logging, forestry and saw milling photos. This week’s review of vintage logging is about skidding logs out of the forest and a few of the different ways that job was accomplished.
Click on the images to view larger pictures. If the pictures are not larger, I don’t have an explanation as to why it might not be showing for you. Some people can see them, others cannot.

It is amazing how they got some of those big logs out of the mountains. I look foward to your pictures on Saturdays.
