After a late start due to a flat tire on one of the Forest Service vehicles we started off the week as we usually do pulling Spanish Broom with six new volunteers. This week our volunteers were slightly older than the normal people that come out to help us, however, they were much more exuberant than the younger people usually are. After pulling a dozen or so of these troublesome plants we left the site but were delayed yet again when one of the volunteers blew a tire on their truck. Luckily Brian stepped in with his SCA training and quickly helped change their tire. Monday through Wednesday we went into a series of canyons that the Weed Crew started late last week. Monday was a relatively normal day removing the usual Polypogon, Prickly Lettuce, Soncus, and Bull Thistle. Tuesday and Wednesday were full of adventure and old friends. While swimming through fields upon fields of Poodle Dog Bush we were back pulling our old friend Sisybrium. Danny, David, and Meagan were working in the same relative area but Brian was in a different group that ended up going on a wild goose chase that resulted in the climbing of Mount Gleason. Wednesday and Thursday were less stressful than the previous day but still full of hard work and was a long day for everyone.
