100 Years Ago

100 years ago this road was the Great Northern Railroad right of way.  Straight ahead, where the road ends, a bridge crossed the Cowlitz River.  Only the abutments remain.   A small town, Olequa, grew up around this spot, but gradually vanished after the railroad changed its route.  Today, Old Olequa Crossing is just a short road with farms and cattle--and beautiful trees.
