Logging in Oregon #3

A new Meme is being launched called That's my world. so click on the Icon and join.


Last week our trip took us to Roseburg, on our way to the coast, we had lived there for over 40 yrs and i have to admit we never went to the Museum there, Which we ended up staying at the Fairgrounds in the RV Park. But it was too late to go inside, but did capture these photos. Logging was a Major part of this community, which is not that way anymore.
For those that would like to know and see more about logging there is a place south of Bend near Chiliquin Or. called Collier Logging Museum
Also is a nice area for camping and fishing.check it out.

We did run into several of these, which was a good sign, that ment some people still had jobs for awhile.

Interesting post!

I like your photos, especially the last with the truck on the road and the fog in the background.

It's funny how they called that machine a Steam Donkey. It would have been interesting to see it "move through the woods".

Lovely photos of where you are. Very interesting to learn above steam donkey. Without the photo and information, I would think that someone steamed a donkey....lol. Happy tuesday.

That's typical, when you live in a town you forget to visit special places that's for when you a coming back !

Leora said...

Thanks for telling us about this area and the steam donkey. I love the truck coming down in the highway surrounded by the lovely trees and mist.

That "steam donkey" looked like the most bizarre equipment I have ever seen. But as long as it did its job...

I saw the rest of the pictures in your other blog. Nice offering for this week. I love the drive to Oregon we took two years ago.

That Steam DOnkey is a very interesting piece of equipment. Be something to see in action. I also like that last shot of the truck with the fog.

Mary said...

The steam donkey looks interesting...will have to point it out to my husband since he likes anything mechanical :-)

I went thru Roseburg on on the way to a bell choir convention in Medford. We stopped to eat at Wendy's. The following fall, my granddaughter got a job teaching in Roseburg in a Lutheran School and is still there.

We didn't really have time to look around so this is a nice photo journey for me.

Brit' Gal Sarah said...

Very interesting, I have never seen a steam donkey before!

chrome3d said...

That donkey has some heavy legs!

Meggie said...

Isn't it funny how sometimes we don't take advantage of the history in our own area? I recently went on a guided tour of my city and learned quite a bit. Your logging history is quite fascinating.

John said...
