The February work party was held on a cold & snowy Super Bowl Sunday, where work was planned to finish the reroute around the very steep hill approaching the bridge we built last fall. Because of the weather, there was no one besides the intrepid (foolish?) Work Projects Coordinator in attendance. As I approached the bridge I noticed there had been a horse & rider on the trail that morning and there were 18-inch long skids on every step down the hill. There is quite a bit of clay in the tread, making it very slick. I did manage to complete another difficult section with 3-1/2 hours of work and should be able to complete the rest of it in another 5-6 hours.
