Dec 30, 2018 -Stower Trail work crew

The Stower trail work crew finished the clean up.  With a team of 15 workers from Amery Snowmobile Club and Osceola Valley SnoGoers Club. Starting at Duranda and finishing at Amery.  The cold and breezy weather did not deter our team. A lot  of cutting and brushing was needed and completed on the trail.  The following pictures captures some of the work done. We used our tractor and hay rack for cutting.
