A Rakish Delight – Part 2

Yesterday (March 30th) was the big day of trail work at Pawnee National Grassland!  Thanks to everyone who was involved!  The Roosevelt National Forest staff was impressively organized, and the Poudre Wilderness Volunteers provided a lot of extra muscle.  The work was hard, but we had a lot of fun and enjoyed some classic wild Great Plains weather!  The day started sunny, then turned cloudy and windy, then a cold rainy squall came rolling through, then back to sunshine.  Perfect.

Below are some pictures, with more to follow in Part 3, from our day of trailblazing:
