Alpine Visit April 30

Alpine, WA April 17, 2011.

I will be writing about our Alpine expedition on April 30, today I have some pictures of the mill and town. If you are going to be there on the 30th, be sure and study Tim's website before you go.

Some pictures of Alpine in April/May of 2010 are on my website

If you happen to be at Alpine before the 30th, feel free to leave some comments on this blog. Thank you.

Looking east from the depot.

You can see Carroll Creek in the center, beyond the water tank. There do not appear to be any houses on the east side of the creek in this photo, but in May 2010 we found evidence of a few buildings on the hill above the tracks.
