PIT Project Warm Springs

Wow, 2 posts in a week.
This was my next adventure. A week in the Frank Church Wilderness working on a PIT project I mentioned in an earlier post.
It was wet starting the week out. But it dried out and warmed up to almost hot by the next weekend.
When the group headed out of Challis Sunday morning we met up with packers Geoff and Jenny.
The entire had been razed by fire hot enough to kill everything, but not burn it up.
The SCA boys, (Student Conservation Association), had the camp setup and were felling trees for our project with a crosscut saw.
The Wilderness allows no power tools.
They Felled , we peeled and we cleaned logs and put the Warm Springs Guard Station back in order.
Next year we go back to replace the sill logs and finish the roof.

Click on the photo to go to the flickr set. Why they are always sorted backwards I haven't figured out yet.

Like as before, these photos are small and barely printable, suitable only for the web, mainly due to theft issues. If you see a photo you want, in a larger file size, just ask.
