Snoqualmie Historic Log Pavilion.

The Big Log

Field review by the editors.

Snoqualmie, Washington

People around Snoqualmie are apparently so familiar with big logs that they haven't bothered to identify the giant one parked just off the town's main drag. Is it a 12-foot-wide Western Red Cedar? A 15-foot-wide Sitka Spruce? It's sheltered beneath the Centennial Log Pavilion (erected in 1989) and so big that it extends over the edges of the railway flatcar that hauled it here. But the log is evidently on display not because of its impressive size, but because it's typical of the logs that were hauled through Snoqualmie on their way to the nearest sawmill.
