The Columbia and Nehalem Valley Railroad was owned by the ambitious Portland-based Peninsular Lumber Company, and in 1902 announced its intention to lay rails from Columbia City, Oregon to Pittsburgh, Oregon, but by 1912, they had only gone 8 miles into the forest.
Along that 8mile stretch was the Crib Bridge captured in this photo. These style bridges were built in remote areas, before a train track arrived, where pile drivers couldn't be brought in for the more popular piling design. The rounded edges of the logs were cut to enable the log to be pulled by horse through the forest.
Thanks to the OSU Special Collections & Archives Research Center for stewarding and sharing these photos.
It's my Sunday today. Time to relax and craft the day away 🌿

Hack Squats w/ Accommodated Resistance. -
When it comes to utilizing techniques like accommodated resistance (in this case resistance bands) a couple things need to be considered.... 1.) Are you using this in the right context? and 2.) Is it practical? Both these apply here.
In the video I am performing a Reverse Hack Squat. I did a top loading set at 6-8 reps and a back off loading set at 8-15 reps. So what is the point of accommodated resistance? It allows you to manipulate the strength curve either making a portion of the movement easier or harder than it usually is. In this case the reverse band helps me out of the hole or the bottom of the movement which is the most difficult part. As I extend my knees and hips and get farther away from the bottom my loading weight stays the same but I get less and less band tension making the top heavier than I’m used too.
Couple things I focus on with Hacks are 1.) Keep my knees tracking same direction as toes and concentrating on not allowing my knees to valgus (collapse in), 2.) Keeping my back and butt on the pad and not letting my hips come up, 3.) Trying to limit bouncing out of the hole and keeping the movement smooth and keeping all the load on my quads (those last couple I bounced to push myself and extend the set) 4.) Bracing my core, staying tight, and practicing good breathing techniques 👍🏼💪🏼
@chadtorkelsen - Rialto Beach is one of the most unique places I’ve seen. Varying between pebbles and sand, with drift wood piled up throughout, it’s a surprisingly difficult hike to make it to this viewpoint, but it’s more than worth it! I spent ages watching a bald eagle soar overhead before eventually settling on the very top of the big rock in this photo! A truly memorable experience, I’d love to return and spend some more nights exploring the Northern Washington coastline! #earthoutdoors

Every time we visit the island, we always walk this trail with my dad. I look forward to it so much and it just keeps getting more beautiful! Do you have a favourite hometown trail? .
Today we head for a day trip adventure, stay tuned in our stories for all the fun! 🎉
Yesterday was the best. We went on a little day trip to Tofino to spend time at the beach, catch up with a good friend, go for a hike, and have all the laughs. We got incredibly lucky with beautiful sunshine (with an intermission of torrential downpour 😂) and even caught a little sunset to end our day 🥰. Ollie had a blast running in the sand and meeting other pups on the beach. .
Feeling rejuvenated and relaxed. It was just what we needed!
