This hitch had us working in a part of the forest that we hadn’t yet spent much time – the South Fork of the Skokomish trail. We set up camp at LeBar Horse Camp and hiked into work on the trail every day. It was great to be able to hike so much and work on lots of different projects. In past hitches we have worked on getting larger projects done and spending multiple days at the same site. During this hitch, we just found smaller projects along the trail that needed to be completed and worked on them before moving on. It was a great change of pace and we were able to spend our time on various projects. We also celebrated two birthdays during this hitch – Christine’s on the 12th and Trevor’s on the 13th. It was birthday madness! We ate way too much burnt cake.
Some of the small projects we worked on included: moving two 30’ logs for a WTA work project, filling in trail dips with fill, filling in over roots with fill, a 100’ trail reroute, cleaning out culverts filled with debris, splitting a 25”x14’ cedar in half using wedges for a WTA work project, and lots of brushing.
