Fear not Bill. Mud Lake lean-to is far from dead and gone. In fact with the efforts of Lean2Rescue and ADK Lean-to Adopters, this lean-to should be up and running by next spring. I shall post pics upon it's completion. While this lean-to may not offer the most scenic views it is a valued resource for those lucky enough to be able to rest there. Hopefully, after restoration, this lean-to will have at least another 50 years of life

I got an email yesterday that work has been started on this Lean to and they need volunteers for this saturday for more work. They are going to get it up and a tarp on it and then haul in roofing supplies this winter.

I guess I am a bit more tech savvy than I thought. Here is the contact email for the work project this Saturday. If they don't have the people they won't be able to do the work. I will do my best to be there. mailto:deluciap@welchallyn.com

The Mud Lake lean2 is again upright, dry, and perfectly functional.

Good job guys. Wish I could have joined you Ordin, but "she who must be obeyed" said no. Hopefully next round.

Hey Chuck, great news on the rescue!
Thanks. You guys never cease to amaze me.

Were you one of the guys that my dog & I past along the beginning of the trail near the parking area around 7:30am Sat morning?

I do remember a guy and his dog. We almost meet again.

If you remember the group, I was the dumb looking one. Easy to spot.

I knew that goofy looking guy in the back with the long hair looked kind of familiar.
I apologize for not stopping to say hello...seemed like you guys were pretty busy, and I was kind of in a hurry to get down the trail ahead of the guys with guns.
Next time bro.

Goofy looking... Long hair... Guilt as charged.
See, easy to spot.

Next time, join in the festivities! We're generally harmless, house-trained, and up to date on our shots. Generally.

Weren't just me. The thanks gets spread far and wide. My paltry contribution is meaningless when looked at relative to everything that's gone on. That's an unwavering, universal, and eternal truth.

The real thanks goes not to the individual, but to the collective. Weird things happen when forces align. There's a multiplying effect, one that is truly immeasurable, that takes place when the spirit of volunteerism takes hold. You, certainly now understand that.

Thanks for Monday.


Chuck

Well spoken! And thanks to you and the other volunteers.

Chuck, its Glen. Good to hear the Leanto is up and running, I remember Paul talking about heading there after we finished at Spruce. Wish I could have gone, sounds like a good trip.

As my dear friend Saint Paul says, "People working together can do the amazing, and when they do, it feels amazing. If we could better communicate this idea to all those that want to give back to the Adirondacks, bolder initiatives would become commonplace and I’m sure that the entire infrastructure within the park would inherit a bright future for the first time. Let’s make that a goal too. – PD L2R

Master Glenn, you are not alone in wishing that you were there! My old man carcass has to up its game when the younger horses are otherwise occupied. Its starting to take its toll. Its a good pain, though.

Your new avatar rocks. The photographer sucks, but the scene content is tops.
