In the fifties the new country, rich in timber, fishing, mining, and agricultural resources, was tramped by eager homeseekers, prospectors, and fortune hunters. Today, the easily reached timber has been cut, and logging operations have moved back into the foothills and the less accessible regions. In the hidden hinterland, abandoned sawmills and logging operations have left ghost towns in their wake. Of the inhabitants who remain, a few maintain themselves by small-scale farming, poultry raising, and dairying. Bordering the road are alternating stretches of small timber, stump lands, and prosperous farms.
