Log Jam

Logs Washed Ashore near Elephant Rock, Seal Rock State Park, Oregon  © Doug Hickok
(Velvia Slide Film)



The above collection of wooden jazz musicians, known as "The Logs", have pilled-up together along the Oregon coast for a jam session. Rhythmic thudding and thumping have become a signature sound of this tree-mendous group. You can hear them "live" at Seal Rock State Park, especially on days when the tide is up-tempo, 

and the winds are blowing hard.

  2. Now that would be a symphony I'd love to hear, Rob! This reminds me of when we were on Vancouver Island a few years back and saw all the logs lined up along the beaches from falling off the barges (I think).

  8. Do lumberjacks make jam when they're not logging?
    Perhaps they also do buche de Noel? Who knows...
