Snow until the step down, pretty sloppy up top but tires are getting through to dirt. I opened up another re-route about half way down. It’s not totally finished, but it’s open enough to ride.

Replaced broken slats on second bridge east of lower Ladies - stringers have some surface rot but lots of solid wood at the core - much better than I was expecting :) reporter

In amazing shape - new work is great. A few muddy spots where some of the new work hasn’t set yet, but overall it’s great. reporter
