       BIG MEADOW comes to mind this time of year as winter gives way to spring and summer. Four of our members recently traveled to the area to put up the fences and make repairs. Mike Williams led the group of Dale Crawford, Alan Sanderson and Joe McDonald. The team was there for three days from May 9 thru May 11. Their report was that the forest service had felled many of the dead trees in the staging area.
