On Tuesday we returned to our section of the NCT south of Mass City to clear more of it. Best thing was my pals Larry and Jeff came to help us!
|At the parking lot, we get ready and Larry shows up!|
Ya, he rubs me some.
|Let's go people! We hike well over a mile to get to the work area.|
|Arly starts to string whacking ferns and them tree shoots down.|
|The rest of the crew is lopping and blazing trees.|
|Break time! Where'd the dog go??|
|Arly brought three heads with him so any job could be done.|
Chainsaw, string head and a brush cutter and
all of them were used today.
|As we go west, the trail got more brushy.|
|We get to a seriously overgrown section. Ya, this is the trail.|
|Arly switches the whacker head to the three sided one we call the boomerang you see here. It's perfect for small trees and brush just like this|
|This is a jungle!|
|After the boomerang was used.|
|Larry is scraping trees for blazing|
|Blazing trees is all about team work.|
|The crew watches Larry scrape this tree.|
|Use lots of paint Jeff!|
|Ya, that's what I like to see!|
|He's such a ham! Now with blue spots.|
|After a long, long day on the trail, this hearty crew gets back.|
We got lots done with the help of these two!
|On the way back they stop and let me go for a swim|
in the east branch of the Ontonagon!
|I shake off to share it.|
|Back in town, we got a pizza and ate it at Jeff's camp.|
As usual, I didn't get any.
|It's been a long day but I have some energy left for chipmunks!|
