Grooming Dog Trails

There are many trails in and around Two Rivers. From October until May they are winter trails and are predominately used by dog mushers. The occasional snow machine enthusiast will venture out on the trail system but more often than not there are mostly dog teams. One of the nicest trails was 'closed' most of last winter due to severe overgrowth and snowfall - the willows and tree limbs made it impassable.

So, quite a few of the neighborhood mushers gathered together a couple of weekends ago and cleaned up about three miles of trail. We didn't get photos of the whole crew but we did capture a few hard workers:

Spencer 'gets crazy' with a chainsaw; Wes wrestles with a spruce tree; Wendy triumphs over willow bushes. All is a day's work!

Apparently someone thought it was a wise idea to drive a compact car on the dog trail this past summer. Matt Hall was able to jack it up and move it off the trail but dog teams will get used to mushing "on by" this strange trail hazard.

Tig surveys the rouge car from a distance; Jezzie was tail boss but let Ryne and Derek use the chainsaw.

The whole crew put in a lot of work - sorry no photos of Ryne, Derek, Chase, Riley, Aliy or Allen!
