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.|
