Above you see the stringer cut from the trunk enroute to the work area.
The come-a-long was a huge help in not only felling the snag, but in moving the log to the work area, indeed it could not have been done otherwise with just the 2 of us. Further it was much easier and safer than 4 of us using log carriers as we had done with the first stringer log. Below is another picture showing how we pulled the 2nd stringer into the work area with Richard working the come-a-long.
It was a tired but happy crew that descended the hill satisfied with the results of the days efforts.
