Broken Bridge work
I started out the day working on the old bridge repairs. I thought I would only work on it for a few hours and then go for a dirt bike ride up in the hills,……………But.
Around 4, I was still working on it and thinking I need to get going on that dirt bike ride as it was misting lightly now.
I finally got done what I wanted to get done today around five and put the tools away and quit for the day.
I let the chickens out in the front yard to graze. I noticed they were in the periwinkles grazing away as I rode by on the dirt bike headed for the hills. I did put on my rain jacket, just in case.
Drink at the spring
I headed up the hill and stopped at our main spring to get a drink of water and to see how it was doing. With all the rain we’ve had this year, it was doing real well. That’s a two inch pipe running pretty full, at least for now. It will slow down a bit as the summer progresses.
Ridge top view
I made it up to the ridge top and this was what it looked like. Misty, just little tiny drops.
I rode on and had to stop here to move that little fir tree out of my way.
And rode on up this old road on my cousin’s place, headed for the top.
This was the view at the ridge top. The mist is starting to turn to a light drizzle so I’m thinking of working my way home.
As I rode on down the hill a bit, the drizzle turned to a mist again as I rode on through here.
This downed old rotten tree stopped me on this road. I turned around and went another way.
I was pretty sure the Talking Trees Trail was clear so I took that. The trees only talk when the wind blows hard enough which it wasn’t doing today. Instead it was nice and peaceful.
I stopped here to check out the creek over to the right. As I stopped the bike, I heard a low roar from the creek so I followed the sound and checked out what was making the noise.
It turned out to be a small waterfall in the creek.
I made it home. The mist had stopped as I parked the dirt bike in the shed. It’s filling up fast.
I sat in one of my chairs here and enjoyed the evening.
