Trail maintenance normally held on the second Saturday of the month will not be held on September 14. We'll take a break since the ground is so hard and the weeds are dying of thirst. Trail gnomes have been removing a few face slappers and roots here and there. At the end of the month is National Public Lands day. We'll hold a work day on September 29 and probably concentrate on some roots and stumps that have emerged from the dust and have been causing some problems.
