Work Hike at Bamforth Ridge
The weather was fantastic for our fall work hike to Bamforth Ridge; temperature almost seventy and only the threat of rain. A light rain started after we were all out of the woods.
Andrew and Reidun (adopters of this part of the trail) plus Robert, Midge, and Michael worked the heavily leaf-covered section between the road and Duxbury Window, while Eric, John, Fred and I went up to the shelter to look more closely at the spur trail from the LT in to the shelter. It is still muddy.
I learned Monday that GMC plans to improve this spur trail, probably in 2010. Volunteers will be solicited. I also learned that demolition of Watson camp has been started, but more work will be done in the spring of 2010, and more volunteers invited to participate.
