Thanks to Martin and Ricardo for getting this setup and for everyone that attended - And thanks to Nakman for letting me ride around in the plush 100

I took a few pictures that I'll try to get uploaded tonight. Hard to fully comprehend how big the burn area is but I went by an old camping spot I use to spend time at 20+ years ago (north of Cheesman by a few miles) that we nicknamed the "hidden spot". It is 10+ miles as the crow flies from where we were placing rock. Sadly the area is almost entirely burnt. This type of mitigation work will be needed for years and years to come.

So True Jeff. Since hundreds of thousands of acres is kind of hard to put into perspective, converted to square miles it is over 230 square miles that burned.

Riding my dirtbike on Hackett, Longwater and Metberry Gulches, as well as driving to the Goose Creek Trailhead to get into the Lost Creek Wilderness helped see a couple different "ends" of the burn area, but it's so much larger than even that. I'm not sure there are really any good vantage points where you can view the whole burn at one time due to its size...unless of course you're in an airplane or something. Awesome work guys to keep the Land Use spirit alive in the club and for building relationships with other communities. :

Default Thanks Ige!

Big thanks to Ige for submitting a letter which was published in the latest issue of High Trails calling for support for our work in the Hayman area with CUSP. Unfortunately the issue wasn't out in time, but the gesture is much appreciated.

Did anybody find a white leather work glove in the parking area before we left? Lost one apparently.

Martin, I'll look in my truck in the morning...

Thanks again for riding co-dog with me.

Nak, you're right, Lisa's brownies were awesome. Great end to the day.
