This week the crew went up Game and West Game and brushed back willows and rebenched narrow outsloping sections of trail. They also continued the good fight against Musk Thistle which has crept up the drainages over the years. It looks like the beavers have also moved up canyon and there are several new pool and dams up West Game. The crew also took all our rigging in to Cache Creek to raise the Noker Mine bridge which has flooded the last few years. We were able to hoist it up, add more gravel under, set new higher sill logs, and make new approach ramps for the taller decking height. The crew worked with the USFS on the new Sheep Gulch take out trail adding a rope hand line along the steep sections of the trail. They also cleared the Big Kahuna Wave access trail and we surveyed the Rodeo Wall climbing trail for a project with the Access Fund and the Teton Climbers Coalition. With the dry weather the trails are a bit dusty so watch yourself and don’t slip or skid. DO however get out and enjoy a banner year for wildflowers, they are as vibrant as I have ever seen them!
