Log stacks across the North Country

Scaling logs in the Adirondacks

Logging is an essential part of the North Country’s history. For years, men stacked logs atop wagons and bobsleds and pulled them where they needed to go. They would also pile them beside rivers and then release them, floating the logs downriver to their destination. Collected here are photos of these log stacks from across the North Country.
