The Unionj Lumber Company’s Picnic, July 12th 1919

Eagle’s nest was located twenty miles from Fort Braggon along the Skunk Train Route. Eagle’s Nest was on the north side of the tracks across from Rest Haven just east of Camp 7. The annual Union Lumber Company picnic was held there every year. Hank Simonson (a club member who has passed) was a regular on the picnic and he fondly remembered the swimming hole there and the wonderful food. Hank’s father was an accomplished violinist and was one of the band that played at the picnic. Below is a picture of the 1919 picnic trains.
