Some of the bottom logs of our home have sun damage. The logs have very tiny cracks & are darker than the other logs making it hard to stain and look good. It is only on one side of our home.We thought our wrap around porch would protect the logs.Can we sand the logs or what can we do?

It probably is the south side. What you are describing to me sounds like rotten logs. They will typically turn dark first. Tap on them with a hammer to see if they sound hollow. If not, sand them then try to blend in with the rest of the home with satin. It may take several coats. DO NOT fill all of the ”tiny cracks”.
