OHT MAINTENANCE 10/24 & 26/15

OHT Maintenance Haw Creek CG to Big Piney

Few, but just enough.....
It rained on our way to the OHT, and started back
when we finished.....so good!

This is what Haw Creek looked like today....
DRY !!!!!

Already to Mile Marker 104....

It wasn't long before the work began!

Right off the bat we had a BIG one down.
Be back with the chainsaw....

Phil doing the hard work?

We took turns with Gloria's mighty
hand saw...

The woods were still in their fall array....

Time once again to get the saw out!

Lila was cutting too fast.....her hands blured!

So now it was Kathy's turn....
sure hope we don't have a Big tree to cut!

Way too much fun today!

Even I got in on the action....

Can't tell who this is?
Is that Melissa?

I think she has found something?

An old spring in the middle of nowhere.

A little humid, a little wet, a little hot!
