Hiking to the work area. It was a nice, cool day. The sun came out as we were having lunch - perfect timing!

Filling in the big rut in the middle of the trail and re-establishing the gentle slope so water will run off the trail, rather than down it and making a rut.

Cleaning out a drainage nick. We cleaned out a number of them, and made a few new ones, too.

You can see how rutted and rought the trail is above where we're working. Unfortunately we didn't have enough time and people to fix the whole trail. As it was, we worked on about 1500'!
