A day in the woods

Today we are heading to Capitol Forest to help clear the trails so the forest can open next weekend. It was a really bad year for wind and rain so there's plenty of work to be done. With the promise of rain today the turnout was low and we pretty much had the woods to ourselves.

As the workers walked along and cut up broken limbs I helped out by picking up sticks. I was a bit faster than everyone else though!

Here's a big tree in the way. Mom teaches me to stay far away and still when the chainsaw is running.

I think I'm getting the hang of this trail work thing. Here I chew down a dangerous tree limb so nobody will trip over it.

Even hard working trail dogs need a break too.
