Birds Eye View of Eatonville 2003

                                                                                                                    (photo by Donny O'Brien)

     September 30, 2003

     On a perfect autumn day last week, local pilot Steve Van Cleve took to the air with photographer Donny O'Brien. Between the men ENN has very interesting aerial photographers for you to enjoy. Above is the mill pond and burner, all that remains at the site of the Eatonville Lumber Company which kept the town booming in the early days. The pond is home to various wildlife -  beavers and otters have been spotted in the old wetland and, of course, numerous migratory birds visit during the fall and spring months. The Van Eaton Cabin can be seen on the corner near the highway. And the town sewer "pond" is across the highway.
