Bucking a small tree.
A large pile. Cow? Bear? Yeti?
Looking West at Highway 20 winding up to Washington Pass. My land is in the large valley to the right (North) of the highway and the large hill in the foreground. (from the road up to Goat Peak)
Day 1. I only cut a few small poles down, as I was learning how to handle the chainsaw.
Headed West over Washington Pass.
End of day 2. The pile grows.
Do not mess with her.
Evidence that Laura can in fact drive a stick shift.
This one would be a little too much for my 16 inch Stihl.
Cleaning up on Sunday.
Looking East at the Methow Valley. (from the road up to Goat Peak)
Many burn piles.
Final cleanup on Sunday. We made some great progress, as evidenced by the pile of logs, pile of poles, and many burn piles.
Looking West at the (cloud covered) North Cascades. (from the road up to Goat Peak)
Blue Lake trailhead. Looks like the summer climbing season on the Liberty Bell group is finished.
Headed East towards Washington Pass.
Burn piles ready for the spring. There are about 12 of them, so we're going to have some serious conflagrations come April!
