Only bad part of the trip, other than losing another centerpin, was these guys making a b-line across the tundra. No they are not on a trail.

Guess who was waiting for them on the other side though

Jim has a shot of these same guys cutting through the bog near the 2nd drift too.

The trail was is pretty good shape. Almost zero trash on the main road and very little on the trail. We picked up all that we saw. This is a photo of the mud near Yankee Doodle Lake just below the snow field and then the area near the road. The sign that is covered in mud says no motor vehicles so this might need some cable as well. The sign to the right marks the road. The last photo is from the top of the pass looking at the area that we will be working on. I don't have a picture of it but the signs near the entrance to Jenny Creek have held up and all non-motor vehicle signs have worked. People have created a new route near those signs though that needs to be closed off. This wouldn't impact the trail at all because it just a bypass of the correct entrance off of the Rollins Pass road to the Jenny Creek road.

Geez, some people have been driving around the 'No Motor Vehicles' sign just to get around the drift.... losers. No excuse. Our post and cable project is soooooo needed.

That shot of you putting your shovel back almost looks like you were in the mud area, but I know you better than that, right?

Here's a few of my pics. It was good to meet every one and being up almost 34 hours streight was crazy for me but totally worth it being up in the mountains!! It was a beautiful day and I think we missed the bulk of the rain. I included some of the pics that may not have been seen yet.

All 56 photos here....

I know better

There are two signs, the one on the right is the road number sign. The one behind me is the no motor vehicles sign.
