Stranded pickup truck removed from Badger Mountain on Feb. 22nd
Here’s our story of the removal on February 22nd.
Good news! On the morning of Sunday, February 22, the white truck was removed from the ravine aside the Canyon Trail. A good sized crew from the Peak Putters, a local 4-wheelers club, volunteered their time and equipment and towed the truck out despite the rain and near freezing temperatures. Adam Fyall, from the Benton County Commissioner’s Office, and Jim Langdon, from Friends of Badger Mountain, coordinated the operation with help from fellow friends of Friends of Badger Skip Claeson, John Friley, George Hunt, and Ken McMillan. The truck’s owner stayed with the truck and steered. The soil was firm so the vehicle tracks caused minimal damage and the spring growth should help cover them.
