Off Road Mud Bog Race

Mud bogs are weekend fun on Prince of Wales Island.  They are run on the site of a former mill.  When the timber industry took a downturn and  it closed, the town was depressed.  They got  money from the forest service to hire a consultant that advised they should have an annual event.  They started the skunk cabbage festival and then added the mud bog six years ago.  Drivers compete with each other, timed as they drive through a water-logged muddy course.
