Volunteers from NMVFO met to cut deadfalls along Ox Canyon Trail in the Manzanos this weekend. Most came Friday night and camped out, but I had to join Saturday morning for breakfast, hosted by our cook Bronwyn.
Ox Canyon had gentle grades with well-engineered switchbacks, and might be the easiest trail to get to the Crest Trail of the Manzanos. Seven of us leap-frogged clearing dead trees from the trail until lunch, when two split off to handle a small number of deadfall along the crest between Ox and Red Canyon.
Leader Don, Jenny, Nick, Mike G, Dennis, and Catlin, and Bronwyn made this a good day.
