Saturday June 08 2019 Barnes to Sterling Shelter by Alan Paschell

Morgan and I removed several large and several small blowdowns on the LT from Barnes Camp to Sterling Pond Shelter. Had a chat with Rachael the shelter caretaker. The lookout trail to Smuggler's Notch is clear. A few small snow patches - no problem. There are broken puncheon approximately four tenths of mile south of Snuffy's on the LT which need to be replaced. Removed a few large and small blowdowns from the Sterling Pond Trail. There are several areas where that trail is being widened and could use brushing in - didn't have time today. Both trails are now clear as far as the shelter.
