Logs ride zip line above Dalton Lake 

Thrill-seekers aren’t the only ones who ride zip lines in the Black Hills.

Logs ride them, too.

That was the case Thursday, as the high-pitched whine of a motorized pulley-and-cable system overtook the roar of heavy equipment on a rise 400 feet above Dalton Lake. Trees measuring as much as 15 inches in diameter and weighing about 2,500 pounds came zipping up the steep mountainside, attached to the cable.
