Trail OPEN, and some not so weekly quotes!

Last June I wrote about a bike trail that we live by, you can see the post here: 

The trail has been closed since it was damaged by a flood over 2 years ago!

We usually spend a lot of time on this trail, and it has been very hard not having it usable. We don't have a neighborhood sidewalk or park we can ride our bike on....this biketrail is used by so many in our entire community and is so very beautiful all 4 seasons of the year.

Well, finally it is DONE....FIXED.....USABLE....OPEN.... YEAH!!!!

The large gaping hole that was once now filled in with RipRap.
We still have yet to go the whole length of the trail, there were several dangerous areas ....but now, 2 1/2 years later, we can spend time on it safely!

Emma was on a visit home from college....and we spent a beautiful afternoon exploring our newly fixed trail.

We have not a good year for rain....and this creek is normally flowing...hopefully next spring it will again!

"The good life is a process, not a state of being. It is a direction, not a destination."   Carl Rogers 

"Understand that the right to choose your own path is a sacred privilege. Use it. Dwell in possibility. "  Oprah Winfrey 

This is a nice short work week thanks to our Thanksgiving holiday. 
And the weatherman has announced that it is going to be BEAUTIFUL outside for us Thanksgiving feasters.....hopefully a walk down this path will be obtainable after we fill our bellies!!
