I don't know but I would guess the NPS plans to armor the banks of Snyder Creek against the increased runoff they expect due to the fire. The creek gets quite close to the lodge and a big flood could cause a lot of damage.

Pete, good to see you posting a report here. It is nice for all of us that don't see the park off season. Hope to see more in the future and thanks.

Orin's suggestion sounds logical. Dumping those rocks on the parking lot pavement and then moving them off again has to damage the pavement.

Seems like I remember reading a press release from GNP about several projects to mitigate the expected severe runoff next spring caused by the loss of vegetation in the Sprague Creek watershed and delays to work on Sun Road along Lake McDonald. I remember it but can't find the article. Google didn't help me this time.
