More of the same fun and games today in the rain with 950sm and Riskman.. the axe and hand saw were overworked.. we finally cleared through miles of blowdown debris and completely flagged one loop. Yay!

Hard to believe it was so dusty two weeks ago, now the puddles are overflowing again, great riding conditions!

Unless the snow melts by next week, you'll have to walk the last half km, but it's worth it

Ya, great pics. I would say it's about 150 yards of walking, you're just getting old and it seemed like 1/2 km :shock:
