Summer Mowing

Summer is the time for mowing. One of the great things about Shelton is that we're created miles of interesting trails for walking, hiking, and biking. Unfortunately, the brush & hay keeps growing and all those miles of trail need maintaining. Particularly those trails along the powerlines north of Rt. 108 and the new sections of the Blue Dot Trail. And while we don't have a scythe like Homer Winslow's "Veteran in a New Field" above. We do have Rich & Jim who were out on August 5th with the Gator and the DR Field Mower.

The guys tracked their path using GPS and plotted it on an air photo. You may want to click on the picture to enlarge it and get a better view. They got a lot done for 2 guys in one day. Technology is wonderful. Maybe Homer would've painted a different picture if he was still working today. Happy trails.
