More on removal of the rockslide at PCT mile 172.5

Here’s a guest post from Michael Lewis, President of Redshank Riders, the local unit of Backcountry Horsemen of California. Mike served as one of the packers assisting in removal of the rockslide at PCT mile 172.5. This article by Mike appeared in the August issue of “Tails from the Trails,” the monthly newsletter for Redshank Riders.
