2019 National Trails Day

National Trails Day was June 1st and we had a great (and lively!) group of MVBCH members joining in the fun! We traditionally work on the Twisp River Trail for Trails Day, but this year we changed our venue and decided to do as much as possible to repair damage to the Twisp River Horse Camp from the Crescent Mountain wildfire. We had a good turnout of certified sawyers and the camp was cleared of felled hazard trees and other downfall; the swampers had a real challenge keeping up with them!

Joe and Carol Hebert brought the  chapter BBQ equipment and saw to it that everyone had a hearty lunch. It was nice to see Betty Wagoner on her feet after her accident at the Joe Watt Ride. And, two of our members were thrilled to see a Moose cow with a very young pair of twins near the road end!
