In the era of logging camps long ago

WAS THIS location northeast of Ely over the lumber camp on the Cloquet Line? Taken from a plane with the photo from Ely’s Cyko Art Studio, Jeff Lovgren loaned the image to the Echo for identification. At one time the Cloquet Line was a railroad bed which had the rails removed in the 1950-’60s. It had provided access to the virgin forests to the north of Winton and Ely and Canada. Teams of horses using massive sleds hauled the logs from more remote areas in the winter.
