The rangers drove the tools about a mile closer to the work area so we wouldn't have to carry them so far.

We saw lots of these colorful leaves all along the trail. Fortunately the rangers had cut (almost) all of them away from the work areas

This is what the trail looks like before we start on it. The rangers have cut the brush down for us, now we have to dig it out to make it level. The orange flags show where the downhill edge of the trail will end up.
