Also, see Scott's note here:



Please check that out when you're up there on Sunday.

Thanks!
Will be sure to check it out. As far as food, would somebody be able to grab something before tomorrow? Have to work today so I wont have any time.

Cool.


Depending on trail conditions with the current weather, i'd like to try and get to McClellan. Want to re-create a photo. Also would be nice to get to the top of the pass, cant remember the last time I was up there.

Lame.

Thanks to everyone for making it up today. Sure felt good to get up there. And thanks to Matt for letting me take the 40 out for a drive, way to much fun! Trail is looking real good, other than Scotts campsite. We filled up a few trash bags. Snow on the pass.

Sorry for not being on top of the food part, hopefully do better next time.

It was a great day of wheeling. The trash at that site was incredible. No regard for the environment at all. Big pile of trash blowing and spread into the woods and creek. I, for one, would like to see those pigs held responsible or at least looked in on by the forest service. It's that kind of carelessness that ruins open spaces for everyone. I'm am glad we got up there and picked it up though.......it was still a great trip!

Thanks for getting up there and doing that. Well done!

So were the pipe workers completely gone? Leaving you with a big cleanup job? We definitely want to pass that on to the forest service.

All in all, it was a great day of wheeling and cleanup. Here's a few more pics:










Scott- The workers still appeared to be occupying the site

Cool, thanks for the pictures Rick! I already let Brant know about the trash, I know he wants to look at that spot on the 18th.
