Forest Work, Checking Out Springs

Sunday June 9, 2024 Guerneville CA.

Forest work

I had a few things I wanted to check out up in the forest so I hopped in Hondo and headed up into the forest, stopping here at this spring crossing. It needs a bit of repair as the water is getting out of the ditch and running down the road.rig1

I just used the shovel to put some dirt in the leak part. Easy.patch2

Green ferns

I continued on up the road to this spot in the ferns. It’s an old spring I wanted to check out to see if there was enough water to warrant a tap. There was some water, but not very much to make it worth doing.spring3

From there I rode up and over the hill and down this trail.trail4

I stopped here at this spring to do some digging. It had an old plastic pipe in it, but it wasn’t flowing much water.spring5

Spring up here

I followed the plastic pipe up the little ravine to where the pipe went under the ground.pipe6

The pipe went underground here and under some big rocks too, so I started digging to find out where it went.dig7

I dug quite a bit and didn’t get very far, but it was a start. I’ll dig some more at another time.digging8

I made my way back down the little ravine to where my rig was parked through here.ravine9

I rode around in the hills checking this and that and just enjoying the day and then headed on home for a nap.

Nice day.
