|Trail Maintenance Notes:
||Cleared or trimmed all but one remaining blow down from storm on October 30th. Did not get to the one about a half mile above the first log bridge, but was told that it had been cut and dropped to be become a stepover earlier. Removed several hundred branches and limbs. Debris (mostly leaves) behind water bars mostly frozen, so removal likely to be postponed to spring.
After 20 years as a co-maintainer of the Glencliff Trail, today was my swan song.
||Did not see any dogs on this cold day. |
||Did not see any bugs on this cold day. |
|Lost and Found:
||Did not see anything lost or found on this cold day. ||
||Did not summit, as only hiked up about 1.2 miles to remove blow downs partially limbed by Kevin Rooney and friends earlier in week. One step over still remains about 1.5 miles up from trailhead (gate). Met several folks on their way down from the summit. About an inch of new powder above a mile up the trail.|
