      Cleared 5 trees, and the large tree below the cabin now has an easy ride-around. All clear of deadfall. Ride it before more trees fall down!

      About 8 down trees between Bannock Pass and Grizzly Hill. 2 or 3 of them are chainsaw worthy. The rest of the trail is clear. Trail is in great shape.
