Boardwalk Building at Wanison

Well, yes building was the intention, over 3 boggy areas of the Wanison Lake trail going to Blackfoot Recreation Area. First of course we needed to cart in more building materials. First we had issues with our brush cutter that pulls the heaviest cart with a cable breaking. It took awhile to get a fix that would hold. On our second trip we were determined to get everything left to the second bog and well …….what happened here?A cart that is meant to carry a moose, could not meet our demands!

So we will be back to build another day!

Coal Lake: Taming the Wilderness

With an ambitious crew we set out to blaze a trail lost in 6 years of disuse.

By afternoon we were in the woods where the trail was easier to find but was continually obstructed by walls of deadfall and overgrown brush. Before the heat melted the group we had to head back.

We need a cooler day to finish and therefore shifted the hike and crew for October.
