11/15/2012 I’ve been working again on clearing the west-facing slope. I started at the point, and I’m working north, clearing all the brush and non-natives all the way from the path at the top, to where the woods gets thick at the bottom. I didn’t get very far – it’s a lot of work! – but it looks much better.
