DRIFT

videoTrujillo meadows is located in the South edge of the wilderness area. The USFS leases grazing rights and the campground has a drift fence to keep the cattle from being in the camping areas. If the fence is not let down each Winter the many feet of snow will destroy the fence. Each Spring the fence must be lifted back up into place. Occasionaly timber will fall on the fence in places, requireing a bit of chainsaw work. We are getting in a few extra hours and a head start on the season. We are about two weeks early this year, but hardy souls are already camping with us. There is about three miles of drift fence around the campground and we are almost half way done with getting it back up in place. Some of the fence is still buried under feet of snow, so it will be awhile before we can finish it up. Here is a look at a part of the fence.
