Around 10 AM Saturday August 28th, 2010 everyone met up at the Ahtanum Sno-park where the group was camped.

We headed up the Mid Fork across Darland and down to the Blue Lake trail where we stopped to fix the Darland Mt Sign.

Crawl Mama decided it needed some white paint.

We will have to come back and paint the brown part another day.

Next we took a break at Blue Lake.

We headed on up 4W615 and noticed someone had drove around the closed sign we put up at the bottom of a user made trail.
We drove up on top and saw the person ran over the closed sign near Blue Slide Lookout.
Some people do not respect the land or the volunteers that are trying to keep areas open.

We moved on down FS1020 and onto 4W613.
At Foundation Meadow we added some water bars since the trail was being wash away.

And another trench to let the water run.

On down we made a drain where where a log dam was blocking the Spring/Summer run-off.

Once that work was finished we drove down to a bigger problem area.
Two stream crossings had to be rocked and the big mud hole blocked from use.

We lucked out with the rock being so close to this crossing.
http://www.aworc.com/event-reports/2...k-Party/29.jpg

Woody placed a big log into the mud hole with his YJ and with the help of others.
http://www.aworc.com/event-reports/2...k-Party/30.jpg

The next stream crossing wasn't as close to the rocks.

Down to fix the next mud hole. Volunteers worked to make the water flow.

Looks like it will work for now.
http://www.aworc.com/event-reports/2...k-Party/37.jpg

On down we had to cut a small log from the trail.

Near the bottom of Foundation Ridge we had to clean out another log dam.

We will have to bring more rock in at a later date.
http://www.aworc.com/event-reports/2...k-Party/43.jpg

Off to the bottom to turn around at the Lower Meadow.
