Successful Work Party on the Arizona Trail

On January 16, twenty-two SaddleBrooke hardy volunteers blazed through the Oracle Passage of the Arizona Trail to clear out aggressive catclaw and improve a washed-out drainage. Zach McDonald of the Arizona Trail Association provided guidance. Co-stewards Ray Peale and Elisabeth Wheeler along with team leaders Ruth Caldwell, Norm Rechkemmer and Fred Norris assisted.

Spirits were high as the much-needed work was accomplished and new friendships developed.

Afterwards, the crew celebrated with hot beverages, sweet breads and brownies provided by Norm Rechkemmer, Linda Barbour and Elisabeth Wheeler.
