One of the few remaining lumber mills in Idaho. The piles of logs waiting to be milled were enormous! Dozens upon dozens of them like this.

Very cool--there's a branch of my family up in Coeur d'Alene that migrated from the "log woods" of Arkansas to the big timber of "Idy-ho." (FWIW, a lot of families in the Southern Highlands made their way to the PNW back in the early 1950's--drought and depression having made a return even in the midst of general post-WWII prosperity.

Some of my family members were migrants to Idaho during the post depression years, many of them finding much-needed work in the saw mills.
