|The Upper Valsetz River|
I had only heard of Valsetz, the ghost town, from stories. Valsetz was a company owned mill town in the coastal range. When Boise Cascade decided to close the mill in 1988 the literally erased the town of Valsetz too. It had once been home to nearly 1,200 people. In 1988, the mill and the entire town, houses, stores, the 2 lane bowling alley, everything, were bulldozed and burnt to nothing. There is plenty more to read and learn about Valsetz, but it seemed like an incredible place to start a journey.
