I have a corral again!
Hillside is full of color. Too bad it is mostly noxious weeds. St.Johnswort, Knapweed, and Hoary Alyssum are all invasive and poisionous or toxic in some way.

100 years ago there was a railroad up Lambert Creek to a small town of Belcher. Today I finally found the trestle, or what's left of it.

This year has been the wettest since 1998, when the last flood occurred here. Here is the largest damage on Lambert Creek. The creek became a river and overran it's banks, washing down the National Forest Road 2156 for 1/4 mile, leaving holes up to 3 feet deep.

I give this event a fair amount of coverage on my DVD, where I also take video when riding alongside this washout.

Lots of trees down from the Jul.21 extreme wind event and thunderstorm squall line.
Here is a formidable blockage...







45 minutes later, got past 5 trees,







Look ahead, and see 3 more across the road, of 4 on the road,







And this one is 2.5 ft high on the left side, and the roots displaced some very big rocks down the hillside.

Should've taken more pictures around the corner, but I ran out of energy, and had to turn back.
Horse said "No, I'm not jumping that tree standing on the edge of a cliff"
She was right. We turned back and would've had to jump over it again.
