Fordyce & Cabin Gulch Trail Clearing
April 18

This was the best turnout in years for a work project, 16 riders, 2 camp tenders & 19 head of stock. Nine members attacked Cabin Gulch, then continued on until they caught up with the crew on Fordyce Trail. There have been more than normal amounts of trees down on every trail this year. Thanks to everyone for opening up this loop trail for all users to enjoy. Back at the trailhead turkey noodle soup was prepared by Karen Parks and Debbie Flanagan had chocolate chip cookies! It sure is nice to have camp tenders!

North Fork Asotin Creek Project
Mar 21

We had permission to use ATV’s for access to the trail. Members on ATV’s went to the end of the trail and work back. Wider SXS worked starting at the trailhead while the members on stock did brushing and clearing brush from the power tool work. We had a great turnout with 15 workers. Two Riding horses and two pack animals and seven motorized vehicles spread out on the trail and accomplished a lot of brushing and did a real good job of cutting overhead trees with telescoping chainsaws. Thanks everyone for all the hard work! Bill Corral showed up with president Bob Hough in Bill’s SXS and at 90+ years behind him did some brushing. Was great to see Bill out still volunteering for our chapter!

Halsey Loop Ride

Mar 20

We had beautiful weather for the Halsey Loop Ride. There were eight members that made the trip down Kelley Cr, continue down Pintler Cr, and up Ayers Gulch. Tied up at the bottom of Ayers Gulch for lunch along the creek for a relaxing break

Redbird Trail Project

Wow, did we have a bunch of motorized vehicles for a stock group full of eager workers to dive into clearing the trail. We did have Steve Cooper and Billy Havens on horses to represent the group. The weather was a little cool when we started then the clouds started rolling in and before we got back to the trailhead we had rain and sleet. Luckily almost all of the trail was finished before the bad weather.

The blackberries looked really good this year thanks to some herbicide application last spring. Earlier in the week a couple members rode their stock down Redbird and cut out most of the trail up Short Canyon if anyone is interested in make it a loop ride.

Annual Chili Ride
Feb 21

Our Annual Chili Ride was held at Hellsgate State Park in Lewiston ID. The weather had been less than ideal for the week with a late winter storm, then a big melt off. Thirteen members showed up ready for whatever the weather dealt us and fifteen head of stock. It ended up being pretty nice until the rain started. After we got unsaddled and hit the tables for the potluck, we forgot all about the rain. The Don Uhlman Memorial Shelter provided a great place to set out the food. Tom Barnes and Don Klement provided a fire ring and wood to keep us warm. We had chili, pulled pork sandwiches, taco soup, fruit salad, rolls, cornbread and chips for some great choices. Then there was the dessert table, german chocolate cake, brownies, apple pie, marionberry pie, apple rhubarb pie, and cookies. We differently need to get on to our work projects to work off some of the great food. Thanks everyone who brought the food and supplies for a great day .

Hellsgate State Park
Feb 14

Well, there were two of us there! Could be that the 15-degree temperature and the snow cut heavily into the participation. Thanks, Steve Cooper for joining Rod Parks for the ride. There was no wind and it was actually a pretty nice day.
