Students came to help clear a portion of the North County Trail. You know how I love students! And some ear scratching.
|We gathered up on campus bright and early.|
Friendly students make me giddy!
|Gee, there were friendly students everywhere!|
I just don't get out much you know.
Where are we anyway?
|The gang convoyed out to the Baraga Plains to take care of segment 40, which we worked on a few weeks ago.|
|Now we're going! Lots of down trees were cut and moved|
on the south end.
|Jim and Lyle are scoping out the next good blaze location.|
Ya, blazing is all about team work!
|Lotsa blazing is going to happen today.|
|Dan tried his hand at marking a corner.|
Seems we need to get him to a trail clearing
and blazing seminar!
|Everyone says hi to Travis. |
Or are they waving away the gnats? I was glad to see him!
|I love having a willing supply of ear scratching.|
|Oh ya. I don't get much of this.|
|You can do that harder!|
|Arly put the pole saw to good use again and again.|
|The pole-saw removed many, many overhead branches as well.|
|Marjory inspects and notes how nice these freshly painted|
|End of the day for this hearty crew...so we hike out.|
|...time to head back. I led the way.|
|C'mon you slow pokes!|
|What chapter's trail is this again? I can't read.|
|I still have time for vermin hunting!|
|Finally, back to the car.|
|We got a lot done today|
|Don't you know I love blue berries?|
|Everyone picked some blue berries.|
|Back at campus, I made my good-bye rounds.|
|I'll miss you!|
|What a great crew! I hope to see you out on the trail again soon.|
