The below commentary and imagery showcases this search term.

A major portion of the White Mountains history evolves around the eighteenth and nineteenth century logging era, and pretty much in every corner of the White Mountains artifacts from the logging era can be found. And while some have no interest in the history of the White Mountains we all have to appreciate what came out of the logging era, the Weeks Act.

Though the cloud cover has been a great natural diffuser, it is time for the sun. I would also like to dry off my rain gear at some point.
