Any and all members and volunteers are welcome to join us on July 20 for a MCPA work party in the Monte Cristo Townsite. Our main project for the day will be working on replacing the townsite cabin #4’s roof. Part of the roof was removed at the 6/15 work party and on 7/20 we plan to haul in supplies and begin reconstructing the roof. Much manpower will be needed to haul in supplies from the townsite bridge/parking area to the cabin just uphill from the railyard/grassy area (about 1000 feet). Carpentry work will be available for anyone inclined to work on the roof as well. Townsite cleanup and trail work is always available for anyone to tackle as well.
Meet us at Barlow Pass gate for a 9:00 departure into the townsite via the new Forest Service access road.
Any questions of to confirm your availability, contact us as listed on the “Contact” page above. While not necessary (you can just show up by 9:00 Saturday) it is nice to have an idea who we should be expecting.
