Five large cottonwood trees stood by the side of the Enumclaw Foothills trail. A 73 mile per hour windstorm in December, 2010 toppled two of them.

I took a break after cutting some of the logs. A city of Enumclaw crew arrived with a saw and strong arms clear the wood off the trail.

Within two hours, we had the trees removed. The City would arrive later with a sweeper.
