Sun Jun 26 2022 Bamforth Ridge Trail Work by Morgan Irons

Section members Nancy Thomas, Dana Lawrence, Morgan Irons and Alan Paschell hiked to the Bamforth Shelter tent platforms on Saturday, set up camp, and spent that afternoon and Sunday morning doing trail work, mostly on the shelter spur trail. Our last project was tackling the large mud hole on the LT just north of the shelter spur. This involved moving branches and logs on the down-slope side in order to get enough pitch for a drainage ditch, and setting several large stepping stones to bring people across the shin-deep mud and prevent further widening of the trail by people skirting or detouring it. Luckily we didn't have to lug tools in, especially a rock bar, since our section has tools stored under the platform in the Bamforth Shelter.
