Trail work and exploring
Back up into the redwood forest I went again today to do some trail work, and some hiking exploring and get some exercise.
I was sitting at the waterfall here and thought it would be a good idea if I could get some drinkable water piped down to this spot. I looked at the wet seep and wondered if I could tap a spring up on top of the waterfall.
I decided to see if there was a tap-able spring up above the fall so would have to ride around some roads to get to that spot but first I needed to walk back down the trail to the quad runner through here.
So I rode down there but was blocked by all this down stuff on the road.
Top of the waterfall
Once I was at the bottom of that road I was near the top of the waterfall.
At the top of the waterfall I spotted this water. Good enough for animals to drink but not for people. I looked around for where it was coming out of the ground but there was only a seep so nothing I can tap for a drink of water.
Taking care of that brush on the road on the way down now pays off as I was able to ride the quad out up the steep hill and didn’t have to walk.
Checking one last seep
I stopped here on the way home as it’s the upper part of the creek where the waterfall is.I checked out that damp spot on the right which is where the lower seeps are getting their water. I could tap it but it’s still just a seep and not worth it.

From there I went on home for a rest and a nap.
The rest of the day I spent puttering around the yard chair hopping. The evening was nice so I stayed out until it started to get dark.
