Oh ya. We were lucky enough to have Marj and Rebecca along to help continue on down segment 34 towards that big crossing of the West Branch of the Sturgeon.
|Marj takes care of the trail near Tibbets Falls but came to help us here.|
|Rebecca is just getting involved...we're so glad she joined us!|
|I spied some interesting growth. Fungus? Lichen?|
|Marj and I took our break together. We all needed it!|
|Arly spied a dead tree, that easily|
could topple over and block the trail.
|Since the saw was available, he took care of it today.|
|After Marj and Rebeca left, we walked forward and decided to|
"sprint" to and clear the beaver dam crossing.
|Made it to the crossing!|
|We found many planks along the way...|
covering holes so hikers don't get hurt??
|Once the weeds and grass was cut, you could|
see the ground and planks. Easy crossing!
|Blazes marked the way, once upon a time.|
|We also cleared the top of the beaver dam.|
This path was blazed also.
The berries were no match for the string whacker.
|We were glad to be back, after that hot 2.5 mile hike to the car!|
Do note, we didn't clear the last 1/3 a mile to the beaver
dam crossing. We'll need to return and clear it.
