Iím 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.

Iím hoping that these can occur more frequently. There was so much trash removed from the trail today and thereís 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.
