Got a mowing done today to finally catch up on the clearing area and the trails, to the extent that I can. Sadly, it seems that the DNR has given up on mowing past the gates, so the trails are much narrower as a result. They did clear the giant root ball away from the river trail rock slide, so I was appreciative of having that access again. The weather, vehicle concerns, and the general neglect of the area by the DNR, compared to recent years past, has been a bit disheartening over the past summer. Hopefully stars will align a bit easier next year.
