Many of the logs coming down from the logging camp go directly to the Vista Mesa sawmill to be cut into ties or planks. First priority is to supply ties for the temporary tracks beyond the logging camp. Trophy Logs and special cuts are handled in Dumont. Rough-cut planks are distributed at Southpoint.
A typical day is starting at the Vista Mesa logging support site. A Shay is approaching the turntable, the chickens are up, and the jobs of cutting trees and handling the logs lie ahead.
