October 4 Adopt-a-Crag A Soggy Success

Our first Adopt-a-Crag was held October 4th amid morning temperatures in the mid- to upper-40s, and rain that began as a drizzle and became heavier and more consistent as the day progressed. Fourteen people came out to help, and were greeted by a very much appreciated 3 jugs of coffee from Cafe Ibis. Chris and Susan's bag-o-cookies hit the spot, too.

As the weather prohibited intended trail work at
Betagraph, focus was placed on collecting garbage from climbing areas, campsites, and from along the roadside throughout Logan Canyon. Three groups worked for about four hours in extremely wet conditions, collecting 40ish(?) bags of trash and two tires.

Due to the wet weather, a number of coalition members have made plans to finish the trail work component of our project on evenings or weekends as weather permits.
