We picked a cold windy day to do Butcher-Jones with all its various spur trails. I took Andy as he had never been and I was extremely pleased to find that two of the major trash dumps have been cleaned up. Thank you to whomever did this. There still is a variety of trash for the first 1/4 mile that is paved before going through the forest boundary fence. Lots of traffic that far to the large floating dock they use for parties etc.

From the forest gate entrance on it was quite delightful. The hike is easy --for me-- and even though there are several up and down trail route areas, it offers beautiful views of the lake and the surrounding mountains.

Again I was so happy to see that the garbage I had seen before at the beach point and at the end of Burro Cove had been cleaned up. Fun hike followed by a prime rib at the Lakeshore Restaurant. Good day!!
