Default Metberry again...

My dad was in town from New York for a few days so I took him down to the South Platte via FS360 and Metberry Gulch.

The trail was blocked in many spots with downed trees. Probably from that nasty wind we had last week. We moved 4 large trees off the trail and picked up some trash. 2 of the downed trees already had tracks going around them

We hooked a strap around the trees and pulled them to the side. When I went to grab my saw, I realized I had inadvertently left it in my garage. We moved the trees far enough off the trail so other rigs could fit without widening it. If the 100 could fit by, everyone else should be able to too. A saw would really help clean it up even more though.

I'll also post a report in the Colorado Trail Patrol database. That area is still dangerous when it's windy. There's a lot of large trees in loose soil waiting to fall.
