These photos come courtesy of the Kjelstad family. There are lots of shots of men standing beside their equipment or downed trees, but it’s fun to see them clowning it up a bit from time to time.

The second shot I find amusing. The man standing second to the right looks like he’s had one hell of a day — like survived a fire. Then the logger second to the left looks like a he models in his off time.

Here’s to the loggers that kept our mills humming.
