Trail Maintenance

Saturday March 13, 2010 - Tuesday March 16, 2010 (4-day outing)

Scorpion Ranch Trails

NPS - Channel Islands

Work was done on Cavern Point, Potato Harbor and Scorpion Canyon Trails

This was a Channel Islands Trip to Santa Cruz Island - Scorpion Ranch

Barry, Dave, Pete and Liz did weed whipping on several trails near Scorpion Harbor. We also did some brush clearing around the campground and other park facilities, and a little bit of treadwork. The views were pretty amazing on this trip, it was very clear and bright. We also had numerous wildlife sightings.
