As summer heat hit the valley, five volunteers sharpened their saws, loaded their stock, and drove down past Imbler to a spot on the lower Minam River. From there they made the eight-mile trek to the confluence of the Minam and Murphy Creek, and set up camp. Over the next two and a half days, they cleared a total of 67 logs from the trail. High temperatures forced the group to be vigilant about proper hydration and the safety of their horses and mules. In the end, all reemerged triumphantly from the wilderness. Thank you volunteers!
