NCT trail clearing adventure!

A few weeks ago, the pack hiked the North Country trail along the Sturgeon River to the Krumm shelter and farther west a few more miles. While hiking, we found that a large volume of dead falls had came across the trail over the winter.   Today we returned with saws and removed them in a 2 mile section from the shelter west to the Ottawa forest.
The fire of 2007 killed many trees, and they are falling down everywhere and across the trail.
Arly's trying his new saw. He says it really cuts!

We stayed a safe distance away from that noisy thing...

Good thing I was along for supervision....
He doesn't seem to know what he's doing

Ya, much of the trail looked like this.
