Rainy day Thursday after a beautiful start to the week with brilliant sunshine and mild temps. The rainfall has brought the forest to life with vibrant colors of mushrooms and a few signs of fall colors and everything is green again!
It has been busy summer on the trails mowing, brushing and clearing windfall. We consistently work on the trails to have in best condition possible before the snow flies. Overall the trails are in great shape!
Wildflowers have been popping out nicely this spring and summer and really exploded when we had hot and warm conditions late May and early June. Many sights and sounds of nature. With the dry conditions, the bears have been knocking over dead stumps in search of grubs etc.! Eagles hatching in the eagles nest near the western trails. Bear sign on Twin Lakes and Bullhead area and many deer moving through the woods on the singletrack trails. Blue herons, Trumpeter Swans and pileated woodpeckers providing naturalistic sounds. This spring we also planted 100’s of trees and clearing on the trails as part of our regular forest management.
