Editor’s note: This letter was sent to the Forks Chamber of Commerce.
To whom it may concern:
I went on the lumber mill tour through the Forks Chamber of Commerce on July 31. I am new to Washington and want to explore the state by topic and chose logging.
In case no one has noticed, the Rayonier Tumbling Rapids Recreation Area has been logged off. This came as a real shock to those of us who have used it for decades. As the sadness sets in over this, it occurs to us that local loggers, sportsmen and tree huggers alike probably will feel the same about this.
was thinking recently about how exciting it is that we will have a new RAC building soon and was interested in contacting WOCA about joining. However I wasn’t successful in finding a contact number or any information about meetings, etc.
In 1968, Mom and Dad picked Chuck up at Fort Lewis and brought him home. What a reunion! We were living in Kelso at the time but the next day we were in Forks and I got the biggest hug ever (so did Bob).
My name is Ryan Ramsdell. I am not a native of Forks, rather Tacoma, but have had the great honor of having been a visitor to Forks and the Hoh Rain Forest every summer for the past 35+ years of my 37 total. My grandfather introduced my father and my father to me, the great Hoh rain forest and, in particular, The Cottonwood Campgrounds on DNR land.
