Ten volunteers came out to work on the trail in preparation for this Sunday’s hike. The weather was perfect—a reasonable 20 degrees with gentle breezes. And the mosquitoes seem to have disappeared.
It was just the right condition for putting in stiles. One went over a newly-built fence. The other was installed in the field just north of Source of the Blackmud. This is the spot where for years we had been rolling under a fence to get through to the High Spot “B”. We will appreciate this enormously when we climb over with improved grace on Sunday.
The work party split into three groups. Two groups went in opposite directions to mow, clip, and chainsaw. Gary and Brad did the excellent stile work.
