Monday August 7, 2023 Guerneville CA.
That’s the plan for the day. I hopped on the dirt bike and headed up to the trail I wanted to do some repairs on, but this tree got in my way, so I had to turn around and go another way. It seems trees just never stop falling in the forest.
This tree tipped over last winter and messed the trail up a little so I wanted to smooth things out.
I got it pretty good, but there was a big root sticking up, so I had to dig some more.
I uncovered enough of the root to chop it off with the Pulaski.
I chopped and chopped as the root was tough to cut.
Once the root was cut, I smoothed the trail out again.
This was the next spot I worked on, a narrow spot in the trail. I widened it out by digging it down a bit.
I did one other spot, before I got tired out and went and sat on this stump at the overlook at the trail’s beginning.
I enjoyed the view while resting up on the stump.
After that, I took the lower trail towards home.
I was thirsty, so I stopped at this spring for a cup or two of water.
Then, headed down this road to my place.
Once home, I had a nap and then chair hopped around the yard for the rest of the day, just taking it easy.
