Rock and gravel moved with the aid of a high-line

Last Saturday’s session was low on volunteers, but this was somewhat offset by the use of a high-line rigging for moving rock and gravel directly downhill from the access road to the trail where it was needed. This eliminated a half mile or so of manual wheelbarrow labor making the transportation of the rock much faster and easier.

Jim Thompson, a videographer from Anacortes, came out and shot some footage of the trail building in action. Here he’s filming Art Tuftee, our high-line expert.

Thanks to everyone who turned out. Would be great to have you join us again.
