Our property has hills and canyons, so a large portion of it is inaccessible. There is a large five acre plateau (which is where we are building our home) that drops steeply down into the canyon to the river and then back up to the other side to another plateau.
Even though we have owned this place 2005, I have yet to be down to the river or to the other side of our property. Tony has been down to the river, but it is a very steep climb/slide down. So he has started to work on a trail so we will have access to the river. He only has a few hours into this project, but it’s a good start!
|the trail starts along the south property line|
|Tony's been using the excavator to clear the trail|
|uncovered another snag from the fire that|
burned through the area over a hundred years ago
|also found an old tree stand|
|uncovered some old cedar blocks from when our|
property was logged years ago
|Tony's making the trail the width of the excavator - when's it's all done, we|
should be able to drive down to the river
|the end of the first day of work, and the start of the first switchback|
|all this work, just to have access to this hidden section of the river!|
