Logging in Yesterday's Boundary Waters

Before the 1978 BWCA Act and even well before the 1964 Wilderness Act logger were busy harvesting timber in much of what we today know as the Boundary Waters. Three of the largest timber harvesting operations took place just south of the Gunflint Trail in what was then called the "Roadless Area. These three logging operations were; 1947 Vista Lake , the 1948 Davis Lake and the 1953 Finn Lake Timber Sales.
