Ryan Cyphers, a National Park Service trail crew worker, walks across a logjam in the former Ipsut Creek streambed. The Carbon River and Ipsut Creek flooded in November, causing massive road and trail damage in the northwest corner of Mount Rainier National Park. Park Service and Washington Conservation Corps crews have been working in the Carbon River area to make it safe for hikers. Crews will be working throughout the park this summer, and possibly for many seasons to come, repairing flood-damaged areas.
