23 May New Trail Fence in the Orchard
We just completed building a new fence for the hiking trail that goes around the apple orchard headed up Little Bearwallow Mountain. We used locust posts and rails collected from dead trees on the land. After we cut and hauled the wood, we drilled the holes with an auger, put in the posts and then added on the rails. It was a lot of work but fun, and it turned out looking like it has been there for a hundred years. The hikers are already using it and they happily thanked us and told us how much they enjoy the trail.
