Saturday December 25, 2021 Guerneville CA.
It was raining when I got it going this morning and it rained pretty hard on and off during last night.
Rains slow up
But about two PM the rain turned to showers, heavy at times but it was letting up and the sun was poking out just a bit.
Heading up into the forest
I got my rain gear on just in case and rode the quad runner up into the hills heading for the place I’d been working the other day.
But when I was just about to that spot, I ran into this downed tree. I didn’t bring the chainsaw, so I turned around and went back and took another road hoping there were no down trees on it and there weren’t so I made it to that spot, eventually.
On the way I stopped to check out some of the rock work I did the other day on places that water crossed roads. The rocks slow the water down and hold silt back which makes a smoother crossing as the silt builds up.
Log jam area
When I walked down the trail to the waterfall I found it hard to get across the water without getting my feet wet so I started rounding up rocks to make some steps across the crossing to prevent wet feet. The water only flows here when it rains and it will dry up pretty fast when the rain stops or at least slow down to a trickle.
While I was working down there the dark sneaked up on me before I knew it and I quickly headed on home for the day.
A bit muddy eh
I removed my shoes and pants but did not try to clean them up as they’ll just get dirty again the next time I head up there to work, so I put them aside to dry out.
