Yesterday we had a trail day at Durango's great local climbing area East Animas. The trail was in lousy shape when we started planning the trail day in the beginning of September; and then we got the rain which caused all the flooding. It needed some work to say the least. Trails 2000 helped us with organization and leadership. Bread Bakery donated some fuel for the volunteers in the form of coffee, cookies, and muffins. Backcountry Experience offered some coupons for discounts as an incentive to show up at 9am on a Sunday morning. We worked mostly on improving the trails drainage, but also were able to create two small reroutes to bad sections of trail. We wrapped up around 1pm and grilled hot dogs in the parking lot. Not a bad way to spend a Sunday morning! Hopefully this will be the first of many climbing area trail days. All photos are from the highly talented Bill Grasse!
Coffee's out, banner's up, now we sit back and wait for folks to show up.
