Midget Mills, owned and operated by Leonard McCarty and based out of McBride, was the sole supplier of the wood used to create the walkways and boardwalks in the Ancient Forest. - James Doyle, Photographer
Iridescent-yellow earmuffs protect the ears of the sawmill owner who's coming from his lumberyard loader.
As he slips off the neon-coloured hearing protection, Leonard McCarty, 68, raises his head, a cautious smile turning up the corners of his mouth to match the angle of his handlebar moustache.
A work-toughened hand reaches out in greeting. There's an unmistakable rasp of fingers that have worked with lumber and steel for more than 50 years. These are the only hands that have shaped the wood used to construct the Ancient Forest boardwalk created at his one-man mill operation in McBride.
