JAN 2014 - Meteor and other stuff

It was another great morning at the park and per our usual protocol we met at HQ and by 9:30 or so we were off the take care of a tree on Meteor Trail.  We did find it but it was something we cleared in November but decided to leave since it was passable and the hill side was so steep the if we started to cut it it would most likely slide down the hill if not then then during the next storm, which seems to be coming some time in 2015.  We did lower the trail to make it easier to get under.
Jeff and Orion working on lowering the trail.

The next report was on Shaowbrook Trail where it was reported that 6-7" Madrone was on the trail.  Well we came to a 4" Tan Oak and as I scouted ahead to make sure we didn't miss the Madrone I found nothing and when I got back the tree was gone and done with hand saws.  Susan asked us to move some firewood from maintenance and since fires in HQ has saved us more than once we said sure.  With so many people it didn't take long to load up and move the wood to HQ.  Janie was also able to use her truck in the move.
I would like to thank Janie, Bill, Michele, Peter, Norm, Dale P., Mike, Francis, and new members from Camp Hammer Orion and Jeff.  We put in 74 hours on a rare light winter day.

See you on the trails.
