Middle's Clean!

Poudre Puff Mission #1: Public Service Day

We saw Leif's photo of the tree in the Middle Narrows the other day, and thought we'd head up there to see what we could do about it before the water came up too much more:





Long story short...lots of thought and planning, and a few good photos. When's the last time you saw a girl ferry across the river with a chainsaw on her back? Yeah. Me neither.







Anchoring with a lot of pink webbing







The Jenneral and her Wood Boss gettin' er done! (a.k.a. not yer average girl scout)







3 Puffs + 4.5 hours + 1 chain saw + lots of rope and webbing = some very cold, sore, and happy ladies. And a big pile of (water-logged and heavy as shit) wood. It really was an awesome evening.




With lots of rain on the way down the canyon and near 80 degrees predicted for the weekend, it may be good to go here pretty soon! Yee-haw! See you up there!

Nice work. That just gave me a warm fuzzy. We got a couple of logs in Pistol on the Middle Fork. Oh yeah no chainsaws in the wilderness.

They would much rather wait until it gets worse and then through some dinomite.
