Debris on the Trail

Went out for a ride on the Root River Trail on Sunday, two days after some heavy-duty storms went through the area. There were at least 8 - 10 places where debris was major, either along the trail or in the river.  These are three of the worst on the trail itself.
You can tell by the areas along the side of the trail where the grass is tamped down from riding on it that these were all blocking the trail before someone came out and took care of it. Since the State is closed, I assume it was local and not state people who took care of it. Probably volunteers.
Even where the big debris wasn't blocking things, there were many branches and twigs and leave on the trail itself. Quite a ride.
