Trail damage caused by Thanksgiving storm

The snow we received on Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday caused some damage in the PCT in the vicinity. I did a short recon north of my place to Table Mountain Truck Trail. In most cases, the damage was Redshank branches breaking off and covering the trail. In other cases, the weight of the snow caused whole, mature redshanks to become uprooted and fall over the trail. I did a bit of work to clear the trail enough to continue our recon ride. Below is a before and after.

I will need to schedule several days to clear the 12 miles of PCT I steward.
