    RR Esmeralda- DeRoux kinda messy

    Husby, friend Scott, and I did the usual trip around today. Notable items:
    - Flies are out, definately glad for bug dope.
    - Climb up is in good shape.
    - Flowers are unusually beautiful and lush for this time of year.
    - Saddle to Fortune Cr rd has ~5 blow downs and probably hasn't improved much since last year.
    - Fortunate creek road looks like a disaster... worse than normal, or did I forget just how bad it is?
    - DeRoux has an extended mess of blow downs towards the top that folks are already routing around. Zero Flobee on that section.
    - Towards the bottom it looks like maybe the Forest Circus is using a trail machine and it gets pretty dusty from the upper bridge on down.

    And in the ongoing Kittitas Co "Small World After All" Bingo Sweepstakes, we ran into Borrego changing out a road tire on our way home. He had everything he needed but the big ol' floor pump from our car maybe saved him a bit of time.

    I'm sure you are checking with Mikki on the trail work??? Maybe wait until we get a little rain at this point?

    Just left a message on her FB page. Sounds like Yellow Hill and West Fork are both still treed up. I'm not going to be surprised if there's far-in stuff that won't get cleared until next year at this rate, and it won't be for lack of trying... Message on FB from one of her volunteers: "John and I went out to clear west fork today. Cleared 58 trees, and opened a whopping 0.8 miles from the top!"
