THanks, Darren, Shirley, Jeff, Gordon, Char, Bill, Carolyn and Kath :0) Well my e-mail is down again and Grace has brought us a weekend washout so thank goodness for BP! I'm attaching the sharpened but unbuzzed scan, Gordon, and another shot from near the mill. The amazing part is that there is a large parking lot and visitors center just out of these photos to the left. It can be very crowded and you can still get uncluttered shots of the mill. Like I said, it gets my vote for the best mill site in the USA. Quit your blubbering, Carolyn. I think Oksana has this month sewed up?

I don't know what all of the talk was about with Osksana. I still can't figure it out. THis one is MUCH BETTER as were many others!
