This is really awesome news. I was beginning to think that the haying of the trails wasn't going to get done this year, but I didn't want to say anything about it. I knew you had bigger problems with that troll under your bridge.

The haying of the trails is another one of those jobs that takes way longer than makes any sense. On the other hand, I have 3/4 mile of trail (1200 meters for those effete, freedom-hating liberal euro-orienteers) that got re-graded and de-stoned as part of the bridge project, and I seeded it after the excavator left, and, as it turns out, the day before the big rains came. Now I'm putting hay down to keep whatever soil may be left in place (and to try to hold some of the seed from the re-seeding done right before the last big rain event). Fortunately the grading went well enough that, while I've lost a lot of topsoil, I have not developed any gullies. It seems the trolls got washed down the mountain. They'll be back.
