Impressive trigger-linked sets of dams were loaded up with thousands of monster tree trunks and sprung to cause an enormous, gorge-carving torrent of water powerful enough to drive the valuable logs out of the mountains to the valley below. 28,000 of these were carried down in a single drive once, and these are extra ordinarily MASSIVE trees too. I’d be getting *well* out the way if I’d have lived in that valley, for sure!
Luckily we were overtaken by a Swiss girl this morning, who let it slip that she’d reserved a camp spot here tonight, but was ahead of schedule and wouldn’t be needed it. Well not wanting it to go to waste, Nicky brushed up on her Swiss accent and we moved right in :)
