Clearing Trails in the Sangres
The Forest Service has been working clearing trails, but the job is not yet finished.
M. and I took a walk on the Rainbow Trail in late May between Venable and Hermit creeks.
We could hear chainsaws running further up the slopes, and the Comanche Creek trail was closed completely, as was Alvarado Campground.
On the Rainbow, some blockages had been removed, but there were still a number that looked like this.
At one creek crossing, falling trees had smashed the handrail of the footbridge.
