Large double tree over the trail just past the rerouted root climb after Hankerd, before the Serious Climb. Definitely a chainsaw job.

Thanks for the heads up. Always great to get a pic of the dead fall . Considering the conditions for the next few days and it's location, I don't see a big rush to get it out of the way . Later rather then sooner .

Hey Greg.....We came upon these last night too. They are a bit before the drop down to Dead Lake. As you can see they are quite large. (to big for our little saws) I would suggest letting the DNR get these. They are from a clump of 4 large trees, one of which fell earlier in the summer. The fourth one fell away from the trail. It must have been an impressive crash when they all hit the ground !

Oh , that stand of dead wood . I told the DNR about the one that was cut and I guess I should have asked them to get the rest of them . I knew they would be coming down but not this soon . I thought maybe they would have seen that when they cleared the other one .
I will send Chuck D. and e-mail hopefully with the photo attached .
Thanks Barry .
