Ernie and Harrison Christian logged together for years until Ernie was tragically killed in the woods. These shots were taken around 1970 in a hill above Morton. The saw in the shot is a Stihl 090.

  1. Good days then. One day I could be hauling gravel for their roads and landings with Jerry Coburn’s little 5 yard dump truck and the next day be hauling logs from them with a Kiso truck. Still see Harrison when I’m up in the area.
