I didn't get a whole lot of pictures, it was mostly signing work which isn't very exciting.
BIG THANKS to Dan, Martin and Lars for coming up on a Thursday to help out!
Kelly did clarify a lot of issues for me regarding the EA. For example:
-Boreal Toads have nothing to do with road closures in Leavenworth. Her concern for the area is sedimentation caused by erosion of some of the roads and some roads traveling through wetland areas.
-248.1L (the first creek crossing where Scott's favorite campsite is) may be on private land, so not sure what's going to happen with that. There was no trash there yesterday.
-248.1K (the wagon road to Waldorf above the railroad grade) appears to have a good chance of receiving water drainage/surface hardening work to keep it open.
-The hill climb out of Waldorf is probably going to go away (part of 248.2C).
-We discussed what to do about the road going to the cabin in the meadow below McClellan (248.2B), we may have options to reduce the amount of mileage obliterated, but a good portion of 248.2B will probably go away.
She'll let us know when a revised EA comes out, that based on yesterday's signing projects should be much more accurate.
Here are some pictures of Dan hard at work while the rangers look on
Also some pictures of the snow conditions etc. It wasn't too cold once the sun came out, but the wind would pick up every once in a while and really blow things around. We might have a few more fallen trees through the winter into spring.
