We have been clearing, signing and reflagging the various sections of Troubridge Massif, both East and West side, up to the summit, some 40 kilometres in all - nearly all done now.
This is Lois Lake with the Smith Range in the distance as seen from a viewpoint on the way up to Elephant Lake.
Many thanks to Bruce, Ron, Alex, Joe, Jim, John, and Scott who have joined in on Tuesdays or weekends whipping the trails in shape. Ben, still in high school, took care of a swath of endless salal on the back side of Scout Mountain virtually all by himself.
After a hot climb, Bruce is momentarily hogtied fighting the flies on the summit of Mount Troubridge (1300 m) buzzing around his head. They saw him coming a long ways off and launched an attack. Not to worry he's handled worse in a lifetime of working in the woods.
