    Slickrock in Alaska

    Today I "cleaned" the Gasline--never done it before--with the frozen ground it was like climbing on slickrock!

    FYI to anyone with a chainsaw and is up to sawing logs this weekend--there are a couple of trees down on Llama (upper and lower).
    Meanwhile, back at the hive....

    Turner

    I was riding my Turner Burner!
    But I went back the next day when the ground had thawed and I flailed miserably.

    Of the trees down, 2 are big suckers and it could be tricky and dangerous if you don't know what you're doing. I've cleared trees on Llama in the past, but these are quite a bit bigger. I'm going to try and get up there this week-end with a chainsaw... I'll post later.

    Also, there are additional trees down on the "back-door" entry trail to Hemlock Knob. These are most problematic as they are HUGE, HUGE trees. I ride these trails all the time, but now that trail is impassible. Bummer.

    I did lower Llama this past Sunday the 22nd and you could see where the trees used to be. I don’t know if these are the same down trees we are talking about. But it looks as if someone got up there and took care of business already. Thank you: thumbsup:

    As to upper Llama I could not tell you.

    Trees still blocking the Upper Llama. The south fork rim trail, blueberry hollow, and hemlock knob were excellent today in the fresh snow. It's nice not having to ride in the mud for a change.
