Lettrari Loop dangers

FYI. Will be putting this on next weeks work party.

Stu

From Kendrick Lawless
Was on the Extension trail this morning cleaning up the Letrari Loop and discovered a several trees down a rock slide along the stairs and a little ways up the trail as well. 
I cleared one tree from a creek that causing it to overrun the banks and wash out part of the trail. But the rest will require chainsaws and more people to move those rocks. 

This looking down the bottom the stairs. 

Looking up you can see how precarious the fallen tree is. It is being held in place by that little tiny tree. So it is in imminent danger of falling. 

This is looking up from the bottom of the stairs. 

And hear are a few of the trees found laying across the trail.
