Jeanette took this shot of me this morning working on the Buckskin Trail. There are actually four different trails here in Buckskin Mountain State Park, but for starters I am concentrating on the Buckskin Trail. Today I installed two water bars to help with trail erosion. Trail erosion is the main issue of trail maintenance here in the desert. Although they get only around three inches of rain annually, it can show up all at once creating a lot of erosion damage. No worry about falling trees or encroaching brush blocking a trail as we do in the North West, just a matter of keeping the rocks and dirt in place.
