Helicopter yarding #1
Wade "Junior" Harlow has been working in the coastal forest industry since he was 18 years old. A good portion of his early career was been spent with the Coulson Group heli logging division. Here he's looking for logs in the slash to complete a "turn," the collection of logs to be yarded with Vertol 107 helicopter. Note both the steep slope and the "easy to find" bright blue cables (chokers) that help crew keep track of gear in the slash. Bute Inlet, June 2012.
