Photos By Aaron Of Work On The Power Lines

On Saturday, March 2nd Aaron (Cabin # 196) took these pictures of the power line cut as seen from Berkshire Valley Road.

Aaron writes:  “There is some very serious equipment sitting off the road between BVR and the lake. There are cranes at the east and west ridges erecting new bases for new towers (I think).  Bases are in place for the tower closest to BVR.  Nothing appears to be driving (trucks or machines) up the hill from BVR to the west ridge.  There are erosion control measures in place. Lots of stone where soil is disturbed with by trucks and machinery.”









This is the end of Aaron’s March 2nd power line pictures. Thanks very much for taking them.

Waiting for spring,

The Roads Look Good

Paul French has finished work on the roads and they are in excellent shape. But the ground is saturated and it is still raining. Let’s hope for a dry spell.

Scroll down to previous posts for “before” pictures of the bridge.

Photo taken by Jeff Galloway Sunday, March 28 This is what some of the roads we don’t maintain look like. As Jeff says, “they are instructive about the forces of nature we’re dealing with on the roads that we are maintaining.”

Photo taken today, Tuesday, March 30 by Mike Klein who says, “We are OK So Far.”

Thanks very much to all who have been taking care of the place. Kevin and Mike Rowe pulled trees out of the road early on and I’m sure there are others who helped but remain anonymous.


The Lake Sunday around 3PM

From Doug Stevens, Cabin 114:

These pictures were taken around 3pm on Sunday from below the dam and around our cabin (114 Red Rd). Too early to tell the damage of the bridge but it is still intact, could not get close enough to check on the dam. Seemed like water was starting to recede since there were signs that the water at some point was behind the cabins. Will be heading back up today to check again.
