Whipple Creek Park, Clark County Washington

Whipple Creek Park in Clark County Washington, a beautiful park that has so much history to offer. There are even several remnants of a 100 yr old splash dam and saw mill still in the creek plus old for logging ditches. The forest is one that grew back naturally after a clear cutting in the early 1800's of the old growth & survived a major fire in 1904. The trees are mostly second growth but were a natural regrowth of hard woods and conifers so the place is wonderful. The trees are so large, two people can't span the trunks with their arms out.

Special thanks to Anita Will for sending in the photos and a little history about Whipple Creek Park.

I love these pics and all the others in your photo gallery. I build water wheel for people and still have a never ending fascination of the beauty, the strength, and mechanical abilities all in one.
