Trail work in the Columbia River Gorge

before-and-after-from-Gorge-holga

No more “washing machine” brush here..

Section maintainer Chris Sanderson sent in these great before and after shots. His crew needs to cut the salmon berry and vine maple pretty far back because it grows so aggressively. Some thru-hikers passed by while they were working. Being a long distance hiker himself, Chris is great at recruiting them for future projects!
