June 21 Brown Bridge to Beitner on the Boardman

 | Published on 6/22/2018

"We did good today."

No, that is not a grammatical error. We all (Bob F, Mike and Barb, Dean and Diane, Jocelyn) did indeed do GOOD as the following photos illustrate ... even though we had simply set out for a leisurely paddle on a lovely afternoon. Thanks to Bob for planning the paddle and to the three guys for the heavy lifting.                                (posting by Jocelyn)

Lots of sawyering. Cuts in three places removed this fallen tree.

There goes section number two.

Barb is always ready with a smile.

Log sections had to be encouraged to find a better and hopefully final resting spot.

The Core's flag seems smaller this year.

Extricating a blue tube. 

Mike cleans up a "mother lode" which included many glass bottles, cans, and wet

And here is the challenge we could not meet. Some slightly-built expert tree climber
had put cans way high up in this tree totally out of reach unless we cut it down.
