Card Canyon East Maintenance
Activity, July 27, 2013
Five hikers joined the effort to improve conditions for the Card
Canyon East trail on July 27, 2013. We hiked to our stopping
point of June 29 and resumed clearing overgrown brush from the
sides of the trail. The cloudy, cool weather couldn't have
been more favorable for trail work!. The group stopped work
at noon, ate lunch and hiked back down to our car at the gate in a
light rain and returned to Logan about 1:30.
Most of the wildflowers we saw last month were no longer blooming,
but the thimbleberries are starting to ripen and we saw red
berries of fairy bells along the trail. The thick brush
along this trail section slowed our progress. We cleared
less than 1/10 mile of the trail today, but the brush seems to be
thinner along the trail ahead. Many thanks for help
from Jane, Dave W., Roddy, Denis and Gordon.
