In this photo taken Feb. 10, 2013, Andy Smith pulls a rope that activates the clutch on the old Chevy pickup truck engine powering a 75-year-old rope tow at Meany Lodge in Stampede Pass, Wash. At Meany Lodge, it’s as if time stood still where the Chevy truck engine still powers the longest of three rope tows. (AP Photo/The News Tribune, Craig Hill)
