Flyover country

Had an opportunity to fly over a big chunk of the second segment today with the folks from Ruby Mountain Heliski - that is big, big country and it's exciting to know that it'll be publicly accessible within a matter of a couple of years!

One of the nice things about seeing the canyons from the air is the opportunity to identify bits and pieces of old trail, which we hope to connect with this re-constructed route. Using old trail will help us keep our construction costs down, as well as minimize any potential impacts (and approval hang-ups) inherent in creating new stream crossings.

Our second segment trail designer has stopped work for the winter, obviously, but will be back in June when the snow melts off and he can see what's happening on the ground.
