Two back to back Saturday's at Wind River brought out 40 able bodied people who helped move over 12 tons of boulders, build-out two rock walls, clear the roots on 1/10 of a mile of trail (doesn't sound like a lot until YOU have to clear everything by hand!), hauling the remains of 1 large oak tree that fell down, and more than 14 hours of burn piles. Also, there was cleaning and "pick up sticks" and craft project prep and more. Too many to thank by name, but special shout out to Randy Woodward for bringing two separate crews, Rank Riders, our local Troop 150 BoyScouts, Team Reeb of 24 Hours of Booty, and alumni Maggie, Doug, Mea, Lisa and Cheryl!!!
