June 8, 2013 - Lodge Road

Another nice morning and the forecast was for a warm day.  At HQ Linda arrived with pie and coffee.  Some of the pie was used to decorate our shirts.
Our job was to help out Linda from the Sempervirens Fund in the upper Lodge Road area to clear trip hazards for the dedication of the Redwoods.

Most of what we did was moving piles of limbs so they were out of sight and then we spread out piles of duff.

It was a hot day and that made for a harder day but at the end there was cold watermelon waiting for us and up on Lodge Road we were treated to a cool sea breeze too.

I would like to thank Dale P., Linda, Tim, Richard, Kathy, Bill, Janie, Michelle, Peter, Janette, and new members Joan, Jules, Sarah, and Dimitriy for the 99.5 volunteer hours for the day.

See you on the trails

Totally off topic but cuter than a button was my 3 sisters.  I was in a meeting at work this week and I had to get a photo of 3 recently fledged Black Phoebes.  Mom and Dad were catching flies for them.
