Forest Work, Moving Rocks and Tools

Tuesday May 8, 2023 Guerneville CA.

Rainy night

I was surprised to hear it raining last night. It quit before I got it going, but the ground was still wet so I changed my plans for the day.

To start off, I hauled some woodchips to the garden area for about an hour or so.woodchips1


Moving tools

Then I rode the quad runner up to this spot where I had some tools stashed. I picked them up to move them higher on the hill where I was going to use them for some more trail work.tools2


Moving rocks

On the way up, I stopped here to move some rocks.rocks3


A few of the rocks were big, so I had to roll them to their spots.boulder4


Peaceful day

I hadn’t planned to work on the rocks so much. I was just going to move a few of them to this dam, but as I got working on them, I decided to keep at it as it was a nice peaceful spot in the forest. For some reason, it was even more peaceful than it usually is up there. An especially quiet day with only a bird or two breaking the peace with an occasional call.

I moved a lot of rock today and lost count of how many. This is looking pretty good now, but I’ll likely add a few more rocks eventually.dam5


The forest was looking nice in this spot where I was working.forest6


Moving up higher

After I was done there I headed on up the hill to the place I wanted to take the tools to.

Out of gas

But on the way, my quad runner died in this spot. I suspected I was out of gas, so put it on reserve and tried to start it, but it wouldn’t start, so I tried rolling it down the hill and starting it on compression and it fired right up so I was again on my way up the hill.quad7


I made it to the spot for the tools. I was too beat to use them, but I did take them out the trail and drop them where I’d eventually use them.quad8


Enough work for one day

Then I sat in this spot to finish out the day as I’d already done enough work for one day.view10

Nice day.

    First photo makes it look like quite a little cavern next to your rock work. Still shivering over yesterday’s centipede. I am NOT a fan of those.
