    Bridge over a perennial bog

    This spot on my local trails turns into a big mud puddle for most of the winter, spring and early summer. Now, there is a nice high and dry line build from gathered up cedar and hardwood. Built it this afternoon in a little over 2 hours with only hand tools.

    There's a couple more spots similar to this, and I'm hoping to get to them soon too.

    Hehehe nice, my wife approves of the Labyrinth reference.

    The local bog of eternal stench required digging a drainage ditch and bridging the ditch with a short length of 2x8. Simply getting past it wasn't an option, I had to drain it to help with the smell!!
