Saturday July 2, 2022 Guerneville CA.
I didn’t have any plans for the day, but as I sat around for a bit I decided to ride up in the hills and move a couple small redwood logs to a trail I wanted to work on so I’d have some chairs to rest on.
I knew where there were a couple small logs that I’d made for seats. They were on the trail up to where I wanted to work so I got my tools and hopped on the quad runner and headed on up that way.
Hard to believe
I had to go through this gate and to my surprise there were two free chairs on the road, that I think a neighbor put out. Just right for what I needed and they were a nice color for the woods, grey.
Up a trail
I fastened the chairs to the quad runner and rode on up this trail. The little redwood logs I was going to use are here. I rode on by and on up the hill with my chairs.
I parked on a ridge back here where the old game trail starts and unloaded my chairs and tools to do some trail work.
I wanted to make some flat spots for the chairs so I could sit and enjoy the view from this spot. It overlooks some of our family property.
The old trail goes through here. I removed the dead limbs and cleared the way.
I mostly wanted to level the first part of the trail so I’d have a flat base for the chairs to sit on so I worked on that part first as I’d soon need a resting spot.
I sat and watched these clouds sneak across the sky.
And enjoyed the view between short bursts of work on the trail.
A good start
Between all the breaks I got about 50 feet of trail cleared, a good start. I didn’t want to work too hard on it as I’m still nursing a sore back but it’s been improving. I worked until the back said it’d had enough.
Actually I over did it on the back and had a hard time just getting onto the quad runner when I was done working.
I rode on down to where the other redwood log seats were and used them for a bit on the way home.
There’s lots of green sorrel in the area which makes this place look special.
I continued on towards home and spent the rest of the day resting up and taking it easy.
