Happy August to everyone. After posting something about the pending trail work this fall, but not having much of an idea of what the trails actually looked like, we decided to head up today for a family outing to look at the trails and see if we couldn't find any more mushrooms (edible) that have not yet been scavenged by the other European families living in town =) Dang Russian and German families picking our American-grown mushrooms!
As it turns out, there were still a few to be found.
Anyway, there are a LOTTTT of aspens and locust to cut out. We need to devise a strategy. Also, a number of big(ish) trees down on TJ's, as well as a smattering of others along the rest of the trail system.
One cool thing is that we found that a good percentage of the trees we planted last spring have survived. Some areas have fared better than others.
Here are some pictures of our outing.
