These pictures were all taken by Jonathan Clark during the 1999 spring and summer planting seasons, while working for Folklore.
Scooter, sitting in the infamous "underwater cache" in July of 1999. This cache, which was dry when we set it up, flooded overnight one night due to a combination of heavy rains and the completion of a beaver dam a couple hundred feet down the ditch.
Mike "Scirolli" Hoar, Ruby Valerio, and Jeff Ohrt, in the back seat.
Harold "Hank" Upton, standing in front of "Big Ten".
Checker Jeff Johnson, shown here before married life trapped him and took him away from us.
Scooter, looking particularly dirty.
Andrew "Swaggart" Thompson, testing out the fire gear.
Chopper landing on a block.
Ferrying trees in the open-backs from the reefer down to the cache, during a raging rainstorm which made the road impassable for the reefer.
Scooter sitting down, holding a Canada Goose which probably had the wind knocked out of it by a quad in the dark several hours before. The Goose recovered quite nicely. The dog, Bailey, was not smart enough to notice the goose.
Supervisor Kyle Matthias.
Ryan "Tower" Cresanto, waiting for the chopper to pick up some empty nets.
Drew's crew, planting at the Timber #5 contract at the end of the season.
Foreman Bryce Lamont.
Dave "Big Dog" MacDonald, looking up at his piece on the hill.
Supervisor Drew Kingston.
Ryan "Tower" Cresanto, taking a lunch break.
Tower, checking out his planting bags.
Project Coordinator Jim Logan, making notes during a first aid simulation.
Devin Day, unloading boxes of trees.
Shannon, looking pretty tired.
A skidder, which drags those heavy metal things behind it over the blocks, breaking up the slash and branches which are left behind after logging. This "drag scarification" makes it a little bit easier for planters to get around.
This picture is pretty hard to make out, but you might be able to see the large log fork truck which picks up logs and loads them onto semis. You can just make out how big this machine is, as it dwarfs the 18-wheeler that it is loading.
Cook Stephan Levesque, cleaning up the kitchen gear as camp is being broken down at the end of the ANC contract.
Paperwork and sandwiches - a typical "day off" for the supervisor.
Stephan Levesque making a beverage before bed.
Maps and block schedules posted on the wall to help facilitate logistical organization.
Rob Korzan, planting a tree.
Scooter, supervising the loading of a truck with boxes from the reefer.
Ryan "Tower" Cresanto, watering some trees.
A really good picture showing the joys of mounding site preparation methods. This is an unusually well-mounded block.
The camp listening to Conrad of ANC during a fire suppression seminar.
Ryan "Tower" Cresanto, hooking some empty nets up to the chopper.
A heavily loaded logging truck with an "off-road" load. Note how long these logs extend past the end of the truck - unfortunately, I cut the end off the picture - some of the longer logs were actually bumping along the ground.
