Middlefork - Barton Fen 1-3-10

Postby Jim » Mon Jan 04, 2010 12:20 pm

A dozen trees down requiring a sawyer between Hwy 32 and Hwy 49. Word is another half dozen between 49 and Barton Fen. ( Seems to be some of the same ones reported late summer. (Several leaners that will stop horse traffic for sure.)

Creeks are flowing a bit here and there. Great ice formations in area's I have never seen before...amazing to see the things you hike or ride past all summer and didn't know they were there.

PS...a couple areas could use some lopping....nows the time AATers. A quick whack with a long handled hoe will make quick work of the briars.

On Monday we sawed the Middle Fork from the Trace Creek / Middle Fork Intersection down past Hwy 32 to CR-72. We also sawed from North DD TH to Hwy 32 on Trace Creek. All clear except for some root ball repair that is needed on the switchback south of TC / MF intersection.
