Today, Carol and I went for a short Christmas run. We ran to where Nick K. reported fallen trees on December 22. We arrived at the fallen trees around 1 PM. There were two trees, both with trunks the diameter larger than my bow saw could handle. We did manage to clear some of the larger branches from the lower tree so passage is much easier. Even those branches were challenging cutting with my bow saw.
Some clearing was done and it is a little easier to pass through.
Here's some photos:

Lower tree, yes this is one tree, cleared enough to pass through.

(Thanks Ed and Carol for doing this on Christmas day. Your gift to the HURT runners!)
