    Middle Fork Snoqualmie RR

    Trail is in great shape, we fought hard for access so go out and ride it.
    Trail head to Dingford Creek is the best I've ever seen it. Some blow downs from Dingford to hot springs, kind of a pain but worth doing. New foot logs over Burnt Boot Creek are great. Most of us took the road back from hot springs to Dingford. Others went to the end, hope they will post conditions. Impressive flood destruction. I've never seen the road to the parking lot so smooth. Will post pics tomorrow, going to bed now.
    Sign up for the work/ ride weekend in September.

    There's a big difference between ripping and skidding. Those who skid don't know how to ride.

    Foot logs over Burnt Boot Creek


    Major destruction, makes for great gravel mine for trail work.


    Some rough sections.....


    A few blowdowns.....


    Nice trail rebuild through destruction.

    Nice video! When we came through a few weeks ago we were going the opposite direction, but commented that it would probably be pretty ridable in the downhill direction (up the trail) your video shows. Very cool!

    Stopped by Hardwicks on the way home from work.

    $95 worth of tools
    Saw 26" $51 This looks like a smaller version the 2 man ones I've used in the wilderness.
    It's made to be sharpened.
    Machete w/ sheath $25
    Folding Rake $10, rides very nicely on my pack.
    Anyone have any ideas for a sheath for the saw?

    If you've never been here it's a must see, a REAL hardware store.

    So packed you can barley move.

    Fold a piece of thick cardboard in half and wrap with duct tape to make a sheath for the saw, that's what we did when I worked for State Parks. Works pretty good for a season, and cheap to replace the next year.

    Hardwicks is a trip, it's like going in some old guys work shop.

    I may have to stop by and pick up a Machete.
