Pushed by the river on Easter
With more of the original trail under water, this Holy Saturday I was pushed to higher ground…
Here's crossing a short "floating bridge" I built from logs to cross the drainage from this natural lagoon (right) into the river (which you cannot see, but is on the left of this picture.
This one is on the southern end of the same lagoon, about 1/5 mile south. This end of the lagoon is surrounded by about 15 feet bank which makes for a nice area to build a couple of interesting switchbacks down into the waters and back up.
In these one can appreciate the banks of the lagoon in the background
Overall, a really nice day as I was able to finally connect all the 4 sectors into a longer single track, probably three or four miles long. Short but with plenty of interesting sections to repeat, several difficult logs that require me to dismount and wrestle the bike over, etc. the possibilities are endless…as long as the river cooperates...
