Agreed, prayers for the family and for the poor biker who did not know that would happen to him/her today!

Meadows, West, Tech, Lake & North Loops were all clear and dry this evening.
Lots of moist leaves kept things interesting.

Big tree (12") down, about 1/4-mile or so past where Orchard meets back up with the return on East.

Chris,
After Saturday's wind, no wonder. So to be specific, on the Orchard Loop or the East Loop(by-passing the Orchard Loop) Maybe past the long uphill after the intersection of East/Orchard.

Yes, about 1/4 mile or so past that uphill section where Orchard re-joins the main East loop.

I was actually surprised I didn't see more trees down, now that you mention it.

West was in good shape this afternoon. Just few minor wet spots from the past rains. North was pretty greasy and one downed tree after the lake bench.

Headhunter across the trail just after the first bridge on West and a leaner about a quarter mile later. Neither is blocking the trail at this time. I expect that the headhunter will settle and get lower in the coming days/weeks. Lots of leaves and fluff on the trail, and it's slick. No PRs today for sure.

I think all the downed trees are out of the way. On west there were like 10 of them including the big one by the bridge at the bottom of the hill. Sad to see that one go. Also sawed the one on north. There was one hanging on the lake loop when I biked there, but if I could pass it... :) Back to night riding!!!

West and North were in great shape. No mud to speak of. One large downed tree just after the "long" bridge before the wall (about mile 3). Other than the leaves making cornering a little sketchy and hiding little things that you normaly miss (now throw you off line), the trail was awsome.

Actually, the rather large tree is just past the 2.5 marker in the bottom. Did not have enough daylight to come back with the Stihl. Unless Sauge can get to it during the week, it will be Friday before I can get there.

Sauge, how is the night riding? Saw you there Friday after dark.

Rode Gruber's today. Trail is well covered with leaves and a lot of fun. Three trees down across the trail: 3.5 miles in, 9.75, and 13.75. All will require a saw.

The downed tree at 13.75 is pretty solid and large and is perpendicular to the trail. Seemed to be in a pretty good place to make a log pile if one were so inclined.
