March 25 marked the first real day we were able to get out on the Grizzly trails and do some major clean up. Normally this isn’t a difficult ride to clean trail on, but this year, a juniper clearing contract put a bunch of trees on a major trail. PNER members to the rescue! When we put out the word that the trail was a mess, Leonard, Elayne, Holly and Les, as well as Kristen and her punkins, Blake (niece) and Rocky, came out to help. What would have taken Max and Darlene several hours to get done, took this crew just over an hour. We were so happy for the help!
Later after the day’s work had settled down, the Gang all gathered at Max and Darlene’s to do some ribbon tying since we have no ribbons tied for this ride. Being practical, we tie ribbons onto clothes pins and then pin them to the trees, etc, for ease of marking. This is really handy when it comes to taking the ribbons back down! Then we can use them again next year, and the year after that.
Many thanks to our friends in Central Oregon for stepping up and showing up to help us clean this trail! We appreciate it very much!
More information coming shortly!
Loop configurations, hopefully a map, and ribbon colors!
See ya’all there!
