Kosmos Logging Camp
An Original Oil Painting of a Logging Camp at the foot of Mount Rainier
I was born 7 miles from Kosmos, WA. Three days later my folks took me to the Kosmos logging camp that now sleeps 3/4 of the year under Rife lake.
Kosmos was a real logging camp, 600 men in bunk houses that lived close to death and many times kept the Circle H Tavern hopping. Loggers lived hard, it was either feast or famine. Often the camp was shut down for fire danger.
My dad would tell of days when men will killed; During the day they were tossed behind a stump until quit'en time. They either loved or hated the unions who wanted the men to have cots to sleep on. Loggers were colorful characters, many from the woods and mines of the south. They came with stills and the racial hatred of the south.
