Tepee Burner or Tipi Burner

These big ol' things aren't used anymore because they polluted the air. At one time I guess these were pretty common in the areas where logging took place. I think they might have been used to burn up the small branches and maybe the bark that was stripped off the logs before they were shipped somewhere to a sawmill. Whatever...they are pretty impressive and big! I think this one, which is at the outdoor museum in Fort Missoula, Montana, is about forty feet in diameter.

Love the photos! I went to Glacier National Park as part of a bus tour that included the Canadian Rockies ... good gravy, back in 1992!
