Liz and I volunteered with the Washington Trails Association to clear a trail in the Snoqualmie National Forest. We started off the day clearing the start of the trailhead as you coule barely tell a trail started there. Luckily, we had purchased "Joy of Gardening" gloves from Fred Meyer the day before and we ready with the clippers to clear down some weeds and major over-grown plant life. After that, we started rebuilding a wall that had fallen with rocks. And when I say rocks, I mean boulders. It took us over 2 hours to esablish 6 rocks.\
Liz helped by being the brains of the rocks and I was the muscle. But she did help out as I was rolling the rocks down the riverbed by grunting and claiming "that looks heavy!". It was good fun.
At the end of the day in our sweet helmets.

NOT the rock wall we built

At lunch, fighting off knats and mosquitoes. The gloves were a great source of amusement throughout the day.
