Greetings from the heart of SUMMER!
Last Thursday June 30 four of us added six large rock steps to climb slopes on the Rim Trail brook relocation. There is plenty of small jagged rock thereabouts and we used it to scree in beside the steps. Rock of the right size and shape for steps is running low thereabouts, so next time we go there we will need a large crew to quarry and move rock.
We have taken the last 10 days off from trailwork due to appointments, travel, and summer weather. Now that the earth has had a good drink, we’ll meet at Winslow State Park on Mt. Kearsarge at 9 AM Tue July 12. There we will carry on up Winslow Trail, rebuilding old fixtures until quitting time around 3 PM. Usual gear: Wear long pants, leather boots. BYO lunch, 2 qt. water, work gloves. Tools supplied or BYO.
On our other day of trailwork this week we will join SPNHF at Mt. Monadnock at 9 AM Sat July 16 (arrive early for coffee and doughnuts). We will build steps or waterbars or bridges as they may direct us. Same quit time and gear as Tuesday.
I really hope you can turn out for these days, especially Saturday. It is fun to go to places we seldom see. Please reply so I can bring enough of our tools. As always, please write me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your concerns and questions, I want you to work safe and have a fun time.
