More Trail Staking

.

Here are some photos I took while we were staking trail last weekend. This was two trails that were in the mouth of the Noatak River and Kotzebue Sound.

This is one of the places we cut willows for stakes.

Drilling a hole into the ice.

Then you stick the willow in the hole and put reflective tape on the willow.

Then move down the trail a bit and repeat. Over and over and over. Mile after mile.



Photobucket
Riding back alont the trail a bit to make sure it is straight.



Photobucket
Both trails were very straight.

I am surprised there are so many stakes so close together. Not that I could imagine being out there in all that frozen water.
