August 19, 2016, Clearing Downed Tree Off North Canyon Trail
Hints of fall . . .
. . . near entrance to 'Kara's Pot Farm.'
"Before" picture of a downed tree on the North Canyon Trail
about 1 mile below Rudy's Flat. This thing blew down late last winter. Someone had cut and cleared part of it, but
left most of it, probably thinking they'd created a nice mountain bike
"bunny-hop" feature. The reality was the blockage was causing
most hikers, bikers, motos and horse-backers to cut around it off-trail, and
causing the side-hill of the trail to erode, so I finished the job. Besides,
I hadn't used my chain saw all summer, so why not?
