Historic Hood River
Stanley Smith Flume
The Stanley Smith Lumber Company operated on the west side of the Hood River Valley. They operated a system of flumes from Rainy, Black and North Lakes to a mill at Greenpoint (now Kingsley Reservoir). From there flumes took milled cants down to Belmont and Ruthton mills for planing and finishing before shipping to customers.
This forest sure looks like it has suffered a catastrophic fire in recent years.
