Mission Peak trail maintenance . The Catulia re-route and fence installation .Both Julia and I need to get our hours in for upcoming 100's, hers Wasatch mine Angeles crest.
I came up with this project. Last year they moved the trail just beyond the creek near Horse heaven. Back to the original trail from the early 90's.
They used rocks and limbs from trees to block the short cut.
It worked for about a week.
For the past year I move rocks and tree limbs back to the short cut to block people from cutting the trail.
I do this once a week, only to have some jerks tear it apart.
I knew I need to do trail work so out on a 40 mile run with friends I decided that I wanted to build a fence to block people from cutting it at the top and bottom.
So that's what we did last Friday it the heat of the day..LOL!!!
It was very hard work. Julia and I just looked at it as a crossfit WOD.
Ranger Neil dropped off 10 logs that would be for building the fence. He dropped them about .35 at the top of the hill Thursday afternoon. Me and Julia had to carry them down to the area we did the work. He said it would take several trips. Yeah right we did not want to walk down and up a bunch so we did it in two.
Trust me it was hard.
Ranger Beth came out to help and direct us. We had a blast. Neil showed up at the end and Hiker Jerry stopped by and we used him to help us at the end.
Neil brought us some awesome fruit it was yummy.
Now when I run there I will think of our fun day.
I will head out tomorrow to run and check the fence make sure no one cut it down. Hey you never no out there. Someone seems to sabotage a lot of the hard work down out there.
Remember to think of me and Julia when you run by our fence"Catulia"
The name is Catra+Julia= Catulia together ;)
Try not to force the situation or force a resolution. If you would just wait a moment more you will be shown, or find, exactly what you are looking for. Try to use more inner guidance, in other words, your intuition or gut-feelings. You should now be evolved enough to know that you don’t always have to have all the answers or know the future in advance in order to attain success and avoid failure. Trust in yourself and the universe and everything will turn out as it is supposed to.
