We'll have more trail work days. Mainly, we'll need a lot of help with the fencing. We'll see how the aspen/brush cutting work can be handled as well. The club had to purchase a new brush cutter/trail cutting mower thing that will hopefully handle the work much more quickly. It just wasn't possible to do it "by hand" anymore.
|Big cluster down just below Pt. L (near the meadow)|
|After we got one of the big clusters cut out and cleared off the trail|
|Another "after" picture. What a mess there was!|
|TJ's had a lot of trees down, including this large spruce that was actually still alive. It covered the main trail on TJ's, plus the E-P cutoff.|
|Saturday evening just after the sun had set. Some snow could still be seen on the runs. The trails look quite a bit different than last year at time, thanks to the rainy spell.|
I don't know why these next pictures loaded sideways. I had edited them before uploading them, but they remained sideways anyway...
|Lots of limbing work to do before we could clear the big downfall|
|Lots of aspens have died and are now falling all over the place|
|Typical "snag" that blocked many sections of the upper trails|
|Each one took at least an hour or more to clear out|
