Images of Historical Upper Skagit Valley

Image of Devils Elbow
Travelers and packers desiring to go up river beyond Marblemount had to negotiate some pretty tricky traverses of the narrow canyon. This is a photo of the famous Devil's Elbow, with its precariously perched cantilevered boardwalk leading around the protruding rock face, perched above the roaring Skagit River below. Today one travels thru a short tunnel drilled through the hard rock at this point.


Would you buy a used chamber pot from this man? An un-named traveling salesman showing off some of his goods for sale to his up-river clientele.
