Like many things this year, normal operations have been suspended, but even maintenance trips encountered the additional challenges of wildfire, smoke, and then winter storms! We were happy to bring the season to a close, celebrate the projects we completed, and are already looking forward to opening up again in the Spring, and when COVID allows, welcoming students back.
