MOUNT SWANSEA updates:
Mt Swansea Work Party Aug 28 2018
A work party addressed two fallen trees on the uptrack trail about .5km from the upper parking lot. The fallen tree left a large tree wad on the middle of the trail. The wad was trimmed to allow safe passage along the trail. The second tree was a splintered stump which was cut down closer to the ground and leveled off to remove the safety hazard.
Mt Swansea Work Party Sept 2 2018
Our trail captains Colin and Brian installed a new sign at the upper parking lot of Mt Swansea. The post and sign were provided by RSTBC. The post was painted and installed by STMS. Digging the hole presented its challenges. Under the first layer of soil were several rocks that required excavation and removal. Despite enlarging the hole diameter, the bedrock layer was evident before the desired depth was reached. So, they used their skills and ingenuity to create the necessary support for the post.
