34. Washport - Bulk Terminal
Welcome back everyone! Back in Jakatastan, we move down the old waterfront, known as Washport. It's named this because before the Kamchatskiy River was tamed, winter flooding was frequent in this area, where the river has yet to split into its wetland delta.
Today we'll look at the older bulk terminal, which was designed mostly for smaller scow-class cargo ships. Here is where gravel and other soil products are loaded to be taken by ship to other parts of Kamchatskiy (since most of the regional rail services go to timber, fluids, ores, construction supplies, and summer foodstuffs).

@Schulmanator: well here in the pacific NW its been one of the coldest, cloudiest, and wettest Junes on record, so we need to find a happy average between the two. Maybe i can work in some more snow for all you folks suffering the heat in the future.
@Neragua: The trees with snow on them are by Giraffe, the others are mostly by cycledogg. That hot springs is one of the water brushes from sorchin's pack with the hot spring effects by craig-abvcs.
