The fire brought many changes to Nesika. It’s brighter and hotter without the shade once provided by the huge firs, and we are seeing many new kinds of plant life, including fireweed, which grows in areas recently burned.
Trails Club members and friends made good progress on rebuilding the roof of the generator shed and built the first of the planned tent platforms. More work was done on electrical and we tested the lines to the lodge. The generator is still away for maintenance but should be back soon. When it returns we’ll be ready to hook up the power. In the meantime, portable generators power tools and keep lights on in the lodge.
Volunteers began restocking the wood room and cleared branches and brush along the tractor road and trail to the lodge.
