Hike #7 - 34 Miles Total This Year

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Today Gene, Tony and Stanka came along as we continued to ready the WWW trail for the February 5th HTMC hike.  Today we started out clearing the water fall bypass trail and then proceeded to SS #1 to pull more weeds.  Most of the work at the site was on the main terrace.  I crawled on my hands and knees pulling all the thimble-berry and satin leaf plants growing from one of the stone walkways.  Tony got all the thimble berry on the main terrace and Gene and Stanka cleared the lower main terrace.  You can see before and after panoramas below.  After that we walked off the entire rest of the trail and declared it clear.  Now one more Sunday for more ground work and one more walk off to mark and train my new lead hiker for the 5th.  I will be sweeping and hopefully some of the rest of the West Side crew, CHASM hikers, will be spread out amongst the pack.
