Salvage operation begins

Safety first! Walking up the Loop trail counter-clockwise.

Tory and Nina posed on what would soon be a much larger pile of logs cut from the trees that fell thanks to the winter storms.

Not a slash pile … it is animal habitat!

One of the loggers watching the cat drag a log to the pile.

No … Nina was NOT allowed to drive the cat.

Trained professional at the helm.

Sid and Nina carefully observed the action.

By the time Bill and Dee arrived, work had ended and will resume Monday.

Fallen log by fallen log, the Loop trail is becoming open for navigation. A must during fire season!

The day’s work.
