Extreme heat & massive black flies made trail clearing a bit like hell on Saturday but the dedicated volunteers along with myself pushed thru & cleared nettles & devils club all the way to tree line on (north) Grace Ridge. The HOTest & worst biting flies I’ve ever experienced in this part of Alaska- even above tree line- it was over 80° and no wind! It sure felt GREAT to be done and go swimming in the ocean. Without volunteers -the Kachemak Bay State Park trails would disappear.
