Another beautiful weekend and another opportunity to volunteer with the Washington Trail Association!
Today we were working on the Pratt Lake Trail, a popular trail about an hour east of Seattle just off the I-90.
Big turnout and beautiful weather! First things first was a safety and tool briefing by WTA Crew Leader Greg:
Then it’s time to get to work! Lots of BIG rocks to move to make way for the new turnpike that will replace the badly deteriorated trail-
Smaller rocks can be moved with rock bars or a rock net, but this big sucker required more power! Fortunately WTA Crew Leader Steve had the tackle needed:
With obstacles removed we made good progress on the new turnpike-

Another group was working higher up on the trail to build a stream crossing-
A fun and fulfilling day! We made some nice progress and the WTA will pick up again where we left off next weekend.
Thanks again WTA! Happy Trails!
