After a rain soaked drive to Potter's, the pasture was surprisingly bone dry. CQ and I met up with Mitch Kline and around 7 a.m. We had a leisurely morning ride and hopefully Mitch captured some good images.

The road climb out of camp with Mitch in the distance.

After the morning ride, we headed over to the south portion of the pasture to work on a new addition to Hornitos. The new section bypasses the frequently flooded and heavily overgrown lower section by the road.

Li'l Blue, the Potter's shuttle parked above the section to be cleared.

Hidden behind this overgrown rut is the new section of Hornitos.

Partially cleared.

Done. You can see a "ramp" on the left side of the rut. With a little dirt work and a bridge back across to the right, the trail will come out just above the old swamp. The benefit is a more interesting trail, no regular mowing, and no constant mud.

Ride time for tomorrow is 10:00 a.m., more trail work is on the agenda, this time we'll be working over on Horseshoe Canyon if anybody wants to join us.
