Page 20 Wednesday, July 11, 2012 The Adams County Record 4D- q-his week I'm doing the same thing I did last week feature two photos taken from opposite directions. This time they were taken on the same day, recently, by the same photographer my big little brother Alan. I'm not going to put arrows on them, partly because I'm not exactly sure where along the road the one looking up the mountain was taken. At any rate, this should be an easy one for a whole lot of folks. If you haven't been to this spot and points beyond, it is an absolute must-see. So get your answers in by 4:00 on Monday to get into the drawing. Call 253-4582 or email Danna Barnhart brought in a delicious-looking jar of raspberry jam as the prize for this week! Danna is the mastermind behind D&L Herbs, and has been supplying prizes for this feature for some time. Last week's photos showed Price Valley and the Evergreen Forest Products sawmill at Tamarack. The view looking northwest (top one that was wider) shows Pollock Mountain at the upper right. The other photo showed Council Mountain on the upper right, with some of the meadows of Price Valley in the center. In that photo, steam from the co-gen plant can be seen just down to the-left of the arrow. We received only two correct answers -- one from Dave Mink,. who seems to know just about all of the locations shown in this feature of the Record, and one from first- time "guesser;' Kim Henley. We were very tempted to just give the prize to the newby, seeing as how Dave has won more than once, but that's not how we do it. In the drawing, Dave's name was picked at random. So Dave gets his choice of a wooden light switch cover or oven tool from All About Wood. tip BY DALE riSK Fork of the Weiser River After two years of has been repaired. Severe plaflning and work, the flooding wiped out whole road along the Middle sections of the road, especially at a few spots where it stood between the river and a few creeks. At several creek crossings, the entire road was obliterated and had to be rebuilt. This type of concrete bridge was used at each. It's too bad we don't have a "before" picture of this spot. Not only the road, but the whole hillside (on the left here) was gone next to the riven The place where Warm Springs Creek enters the Middle Fork looks like an entirely different spot that it did before the flooding. This panoramic shot is a little distorted, but shows how the area looks now.
