Card Canyon East Maintenance
Activity, September 2, 2013
Six Cache Hikers met at our usual assembly point in Logan on this
rainy morning; Jane, our leader, Dave W., Dave P., Gordon, Jeanne,
and Tim. A favorable weather radar outlook and lighter skies
in the south and east encouraged us to go in spite of the
rain. In Card Canyon we met Brett, our seventh participant
and a member of the archery club, where he unlocked the gate for
us. The rough road to the upper area caused us to shift our
high-clearance vehicles into 4WD, but we were glad to shorten the
distance needed to lug our trail tools.
The rain stopped by the time we arrived at Card Canyon, and except
for two brief periods, the morning was rain-free. Aided by a
drier and less vegetated section of trail, this was our most productive maintenance day of the
summer, with 0.3 miles of trailside cleared of brush and
a few short areas of tread repair. Unfortunately, there is a
lot more to go! After two summers of volunteer work we have
reached the 1 mile mark, less than half of the 2.4 mile
length of this trail - but that mile looks great! Thanks for
all who donated their time and labor for this project.
Thanks to Dave W. for the narrative and GPS work (the GPS data
was more erratic than usual, perhaps due to the weather
conditions of the day).
0.3 miles of trailside brush cleared, for a total of one mile of
this 2.4 mile trail
