Logging Trucks

We passed dozens of these logging trucks on the road from Comaltepec to Oaxaca. Couple of points of interest. The trucks are carrying 8 foot logs arranged crosswise on the bed. This is different from the loading that you usually see on logging trucks with 16 foot, or longer, logs arranged lenthwise on the bed (see Stopping For Gas). They do this because the road has so many tight, twisty curves that a longer truck can't get through. Also, it was noteworthy that most of the trucks had no tail lights. I assume/hope that they never drive at night. [NOTE: Nice pine forest with Pinus patula is shown in the background].
