When you descend into Shelton (the road hugs the side of a hill, sharply downhill to town, you pass a sectioned log about that size, right where his photo was made.
I wonder if it's the exact one in that photo?
It might be a replacement after all these years, sitting outside in that climate?

Ironically, I missed having my WW2 Jeep in the annual Shelton logger's festival parade (going past that sign along the way) this year because I'd just gotten back from the UK the day before!

Hi Lee

I think the tree section as you come down into Shelton is the original in the photo.
I have a recent (2015) from Arcadia on Mason County logging showing this roofed over in 1978 and stating the longevity of the Douglas fir.
Also I remember in 1989 Berwyn Thomas saying it was the same log when we visited Shelton.

Hope you enjoyed your trip to the UK.
Where did you go?

Tried to start some scenery over the last few days BUT its too darn hot in my loft.
May have to wait for the heat wave to finish, but can however still run trains!!!

London, Southampton (to take a cruise into the Med and back) and some trains between those points and then to Paris via the Eurostar.
Spent a few days in a nice (but tiny) hotel along Cromwell drive, and we rode the underground several times.
In May there was that heat wave, we practically melted there and in Paris, as it was very sunny and hot there (which we didn't expect).
We also went to Gibraltar, which is very much UK (though they drive on the right side of the road there).








As for Shelton, if you ever need photos of anything, just let me know as I go there every now and then.
