Oct 20, 2016 - Upper Manistee River Dock Removal
It was a cool and cloudy day and 5 of us met up to get a dock out of the UMR.
John G.was putting on his waders, and missed the photo op.
We had found this dock during an earlier cleanup.
We pulled it out and floated it down to a private property where we cut it up
with our BRCS Sawzall.
It was 100 yards up a steep bank to the road. We left two pieces there and took
two with us in my canoe.
The river looks a lot better in this location now.
There is another very large piece of flood debris very near where this one
was but it was just too big for us to attack today.
Then we enjoyed the float down to the Hole In The Wall Landing except for this
new deadfall that completely blocks the river and required a difficult portage.
Where we had to make Max get back in the canoe.
Our thanks to Joc, Roseanne, Paul and John M. for their help today.
More photos to come later.
