Ben came back

When I got home from church, Ben was already whippersnapper ring and the batteries were all dead.

He had whippersnipped all the way from where we worked yesterday to Ben’s bridge, a large cedar that had fallen long ago.

I started working from there a little bit and then he came and worked with the chainsaw. I had just gone through and trimmed the alder branches out of the area he had just whippersnipped.

I stood most of the other branches straight up, but did make one pile. The area we are working and now was snow shoe labyrinth just, just behind it.

It looks like it was going to fall far to the side, but when it fell onto a clump of alders, it was easy to just sort of rolled it off the older until it was beside the first log. It made a perfect bridge that I can perfect! It will be a really nice bridge later!

It’s so awesome to have Bridges! This gives me access to both sides of the stream, and with these pathways, I can cross the stream and come back-and-forth on pathways. This is just the best thing since forever.
