Getting ready to head out with new friends. Fro the left: Jennifer, Cindy, Becky, Rick, and yours truly.

Approach
It was a hot and sunny grind up the ridge and into the valley. Something like 1600' gain with full packs. Approach

And we got right to work.

This is Jenn, although our expert at cutting undergrowth was Cindy Lopper. Approach

In the evenings, we shared a cooking area. Lots of fun watching all the different foods and cooking gear. And swapping stories.

Approach

The next morning, we had a saw clinic followed by... you guessed, it- trail work. But not til we had waded the creek.

Approach

That saw saw a lot of action. Total: 104 logs cut out. That doesn't count the many we simply dragged off.

Approach

Hey, there's a trail under that log!

Approach
The trail crosses a few meadows. Look for flagging on the far side. Approach

End of day. We'll be back soon enough, so just leave the tools here.

Approach

Walking back to camp.

Approach

Piles.

We're not alone out here. Approach
Heading back to camp, enjoying our handiwork. Approach
This section was buried by an avalanche last winter. There was still snow and ice in the debris. Approach

We moved the trail a bit to avoid this.

Our friend again. Approach

Were they running sheep up here?

Or maybe that was the last time the trail was cleared.....

Heading home at the end of the day. Approach

On our last day, we cleared the trail from camp to the valley exit. Hot. Again.
