Yarrow Chapter at it again!

Late March saw Yarrows core group of hard working, valuable volunteers out in Chilliwack Lake Provincial Park once again. In order to keep the horse trail (also part of the TCT (Trans Canada Trail) useable by horses and hikers, the slippery suspension bridge deck (we live and ride in a rainforest!) needed some expanded metal laid down. Yarrow bought the metal and got permission to use a quad and trailer to get it to the bridge. In short order it was tacked down and the volunteers retired to the lake for a picnic lunch. Tomorrow would be the day to see how the horse and mules would cross the metal grip.

My bet was Johns mules would balk but they walked across like it had always been there!! Never can tell with mules. Another 3/4 hour ride brought us to the site of the turnpike. We needed to finish the last 50 feet. Labour intensive work...loading gravel into the wheel barrow that Johns mule, BobbySue had packed in, man handling it down the slope and dumping it between the rails. All volunteers pitching in to lend a hand to get the task done. Now both hikers and stock alike can walk through the this swampy side slope staying high and dry! Hats off and a pat on the back to Yarrow chapters valuable volunteers...you did it again!
