Getting ready: new photos from the site

 Holmes and I  drove out to Shenandoah last week, and with Phil Mather’s help (Mather & Sons Construction) repaired the berm and opened up a new search area under the slump block on the south side of the creek.







There’s a stubborn but hard-working beaver just downstream from the site that isn’t taking the hint that it needs to move out.  Bob tore the dam out twice last week before we arrived.  The third time is a charm.



 There’s rain in the forecast  this week, but as soon as we can get in there again we plan to pump out the water and clear the muck from the floor with a crawler.  Volunteers:  With any luck we will put out a Sloth Dig Alert in the next three weeks. Keep your eyes peeled.  Dave
