Trailblazing Project

For the past week, we have been enjoying unseasonably warm November weather.   Temperatures have been in the 50's and 60's during the day.   Wonderful.   But even better, there are no bugs!   They disappeared after several frosts.

Taking full advantage of the weather, we've been giving our woodlands some long overdue attention.   We are finally restoring the overgrown riding trails and we're even blazing new trails!

The work is very manual and truly backbreaking.   Staying motivated is challenging, especially when the progress is slow.   But the long term vision of enjoying quiet hacks in the woods keeps things moving along.   And, after many hours of hard work, short test rides on the trails provide welcome rewards.
