Pino Grande used to put lumber and logs on rail cars and send cars and all across that canyon on an aerial tramway to a sister mill in Camino. There's old movie footage of it around that's worth watching.
I fished some as a kid but it wasn’t really my thing. I’m sure there would be some nice fishing in these creeks, especially if one got down into some of the remoter parts of the canyons.Thanks for the field trip Carter ! As always very informative. Do you like to fish ? looks like some good spots for a little stream fishing .
Here, it’s not industry going offshore so much as technology-driven productivity enhancements combined with better roads. The big mill in Lincoln can process as much timber as the dozens of regional mills it replaced and with a lot fewer workers. Similarly, as mentioned, the work of felling and prepping the logs in the woods is much less labor-intensive.Thanks for the ride Carter. Always enjoyable. I was surprised to see abandoned industry out your way also. Looks like back here in rust belt but you have better scenery.
There's a much better view of the Camino aerial tramway at 1:19 into this video:
