    Im so glad that you took a picture of the mural afterwards. More impressive that there was a lot of thorny stuff in there. The volunteers put burlap and mulch down after clearing so hopefully the mural will continue to be unobstructed for quite some time.

    Im hoping that these can occur more frequently. There was so much trash removed from the trail today and theres still a lot of work that could be done on the overgrown foliage. It would be nice to have some sort of adopt a trail program and have some significant cleanup and landscaping work done.

    I wish I saw this earlier! I'll note this for the future though. I wasn't sure if it was a hard cap.
