Today was Thursday, loppering day on AZT Passage 21b, south of Sunflower, AZ. John, Pat, Deke, and I met up at the Bushnell Tanks gate at 8:30, walked down the road to the tool trailer to pick up loppers and saws, and set off across Sycamore Creek to the trail.

The creek was flowing strong, dirty and cold, with ice on the exposed rocks, making for tricky rock hopping. (The trick was to step only on the slightly submerged ones.) We made it across with all dry feet except Deke.

There was a helicopter operation going on out of Sunflower, with two aircraft coming and going most of the morning, heading east past Mt. Ord and returning rather quickly.

We reached the end of the work from last Thursday and set to it. The tread is in very good shape but the brush is encroaching. We loppered on and made good progress. We broke for a short lunch break, then returned to the loppers. About 1:30 John headed south to the Sycamore Creek crossing to scope out future work (these events are scheduled for every Thursday). The workday ended about 2:00 and we returned to the cars. Approximately a mile of the trail has been brushed between last week and today, but there's plenty more to do.
