RECENT RUNS & ‘Chances to Lock Axles’

1) We had a good turnout for our fall trail clean-up at Sourgrass Rec Area near Dorrington on Hwy 4. The weather was about perfect for working on the trail. There was some litter to pick up, and nearly all the usually blocked spur routes had been re-opened. The FS wants them closed, so we rebuilt the barriers again. At the spur just before the creek crossing Terry dragged a big log down the hill and we set it in place, with nearby boulders. Other than the creek xing and a small spring, the trail was completely dry. This time there’s just a few photos+video, as we have plenty photos from before:
