Marty the Mouse Trout! I like it!

Looks like lunch to me......

Hey, don't talk about Marty that way. Moose Trout are sensitive. ::)

I did not see Marty today when I crossed the brook, only the minnows, or would they be minnies? Minnie Marty Moose Trouts? Or would that be Meese Trout, where there is more than 1?

I took a couple of pictures this weekend of the dirt work. Looking north, from the south side of the bridge site.



Looking north from halfway between locations 14 & 15. Contractor Jeff trucked off the debris pile that I had constructed.




Jason took these pictures today of the 2nd timber crib construction.

HELP NEEDED THIS WEEK!

Tuesday 8/7 and Wednesday 8/8 are bridge work days. There are PILES of tasks to be completed. Get out of your CRIB and come help us. This will be a major work effort at the bridge site and many hands will be needed to keep the project on schedule and moving forward. No RSVP required, APPROACH dressed in work clothes, boots, and gloves. Work will begin at 9am.

This is just the beginning of the big push to set the bridge in-place before the work window expires this Fall. Other opportunities to help will be announced when they are finalized.

I'm really surprised his name isn't Fred.
What–me worry?

Jeff Schumaker named him- I think he was thinking the name needed to blend in with “moose trout.” 

Marty probably doesn’t mind what you call him, though I would try his patience too much...

Excited to watch the progress!!
Is that OK? I guess it will settle in when the weight goes on it?
