Went dirt biking up Blue Mtn last Saturday, hadn't been up there in years. We came across these old growth stumps, thought they were kinda cool. Notice the notches cut out for the men to stand on to cut them down the old fashion way.

Nice one, I bet there is still enough lumber in that to build a small cabin by today's building standards.
I love how the new trees grow outta the top...

There is still a fair bit of old growth around allot more then the tree huggers want you to know about. I know they have some around stave that they harvest special orders.

I'll try and get some pics of the bigger still standing stuff from my work. We have a 12 foot wide Cedar right in the middle of where we're putting a road.

That's cool! We have a few old stumps from the days of hand logging, one is just off the highway and I never fail to take a look at it when driving by. Neat seeing the notches for the spring boards. It's amazing how hard those guys worked back then.

I took this picture up at Evans Lake while on a field study trip with school. There were a bunch more but I thought this one was cool because only the outside bark was left... definitely a giant Douglas-fir. I was able to lie flat on the ground inside of it with room to spare... amazing!!!

Got lots of other old-growth pictures... but I don't want to bore you guys with that nature crap. :D
