First a few catch up items.  On Monday May 20, we had an informal thank-you dinner for the Wednesday trail work crew at O'Briens Pub.  John Martinez and Scott Mills graciously agreed to pick up the tab.  Thanks John and Scott!  I was there along with Ken McIntyre, Howard Wiggins and Dave Capron.  A shout out goes to Paul Schmidt and Julie and Carlos Santillan, who have worked with us on Wednesdays but were unable to attend the dinner.  We spent much of the evening brainstorming over tra...

On Wed, Ken McIntyre, Howard Wiggins, Ted Hering and I met at Paso Picacho campground for some trail work on the West Mesa trail.  We picked up from where we left off the previous Sunday and continued clearing brush until we connected up with some previously cleared areas just below the junction with the Burnt Pine trail.  I should note that Ted had recently returned from serving his country in Afghanistan and he seemed to instinctively know to treat the ceanothus and poison oak the sa...
