I wonder if Buzz will know what this is.
Any idea where this was taken? Looks like a big mud flat.

I believe it's a devise called an arch. The chief function is elevate one of a turn of logs to facilitate dragging them to the log landing.

Greg is right. When cat logging, especially yarding logs a long ways, more efficient because you can pull a bigger turn of logs when one end is up off the ground. Ground too steep to do much cat logging on the coast, but used more extensively on flatter terrain. Believe we saw this picture a few years back.

A big improvement over the earlier high wheels that did basically the same job but would be stalled by this 30" to 36" obstacle..

Thanks Ellen. Arthur thought it looked like fun back in 2016 too.

I must be slipping if I'm forgetting posts from just two years ago.

I don't know who it is or where it is, but maybe up above Dee flat? Oregon Lumber Company used a bunch of those Athey track arches up west of Dee. You could see them from Lost Lake road.
