We ehaded out after work Friday afternoon and spent the night at the trail head. Got up ate breakfast and fed the horses, Tacked up and rode up to the top of the mountain. The trail had washed out in several placed and we had several blow down trees to cut out. I was leading my filly and she was packing the Chain saw, sledge hammer, some 38" chunks of rebar and other odd tools that I use for trail maintence.
We cut the trees out of the way, and used some 8 foot lengths of logs to retain some of the trail that was washing out. Drive rebar behind the log and fill in with course granual material. The trail was passable as it was but got pretty hairy in the fall / winter when it was covered with snow. The retaining should help to widen those spots and level them out. At least I'll be more comfortable pulling a pack train up that trail come hunting season in October.
Around 3pm an afternoon thunder shower blew in. We packed up and rode back to the truck in the rain. All in all it was a nice day. And I was glad to be out.
