Williams Creek Trail Work Update

On July 16th Bill and Jan Ford went about 1 1/2 miles on Williams Creek Trail and cut out 20 or so trees by hand. They could have used a chainsaw, but reckoned there would not be many trees outside the wilderness so opted to ride and carry the cross cut and smaller hand saws -  wrong guess! Bill had a cross cut saw that is half of a long one, and Ted Lindsey made a scabbard for it so it could be carried under the saddle fender. 
First log down and nearly out
Log along length of trail, lower branches removed
Log along lower length of trail, torqued over the side and off the trail
Now for the top half of the tree...
Logs laying on switchback need to be cut on upper and lower trail
