Cannon Beach, summer 1966.
The codfish fleet, last of the working sail powered vessels, wintered over in Poulsbo at the end of the locked Union Oil dock. The father of mother’s best friend was the manager, and Grandma Young took me to tour the schooners when I was five. A single feature of the ship enthused me to become a cod fisherman. There was a soft serve ice cream machine onboard! The Olympic Mountains provided a spectacular background.
Pre war, Ronald Young, number 2.
The back yard, place of uncompensated employment, and large enough to fly the small control-line airplanes.
The side of the parsonage.
The front of the parsonage. No insulation, the winter temperature in my unheated bedroom was often as cold as outside.
The Haines school, K-6. There were six girls and six boys in my sixth grade class.
About the size of a Jeep, this thing that looks likes the aftermath of a bad car accident, is a rotary snow plow that Champ Bond built from cast off parts to keep the road open to his ski area.
The business end of Champ's remarkably efficient rotary snow plow.
The corner stone from the original Baptist Church.
I spent many hours here talking to Vernon the Postmaster.
Downtown Haines. If you look closely, you can see the hitching posts are still there.
After we ran along the pond, Jim and I landed in the mud in the foreground.
The east side of the Haines pond is over my shoulder.
Paved today, this used to be a gravel track through the desert. Fifteen miles of hard bicycle riding to get to the Baker Airport where, if I were lucky, the afternoon United Airlines DC-3 would fly right over my observation point in the grass at the end of the runway.
Another view of the Museum. Before the school was built, it was originally the town gymnasium.
I do the technical work.
Dinner, same table, same people, fifty years later.
That’s it, we’re all done.
Dickie feeding cows.
From where I stood, behind me the mountain rises one thousand feet in a short distance. Today the slope is obscured by trees that have covered it.
Oh yeah, gotta feed the geese.
Me at the lodge today.
Champ Bond's double wall lodge, insulated with sawdust, and heated by a roaring wood stove, was surprisingly comfy.
The lower trailhead to Van Patten Lake today.
Home sweet home.
Dad’s first church, Haines Oregon.
Sixty-five years anniversary at the Modern Cafe.
When I was a kid, the stuff in the Museum today was scattered around town, and abandoned where it broke down.
This was the Haines Dry Goods Store.
No home delivery in Haines.
It’s a small town.
On the road to Van Patten Lake
How we doing, Dickie?
Just a little more and we’re done.
Going to feed the cows.
Dickie and me. A job worth doing, is a job worth taking a picture of.
Corkie and Don, Bundled up for the outdoors.
Pittman’s visit to Oregon Aero.
One last stop in the hangar.
