Don't know if rock armouring is a session they would consider for Michigan. Glad I was able to regrade & armour the section before someone axed out all the roots. The big oaks were smiling at me & clapping their hands as I protected their roots . Also, it was totally cool that my prayers were answered for rocks to be available at the top of the hill for the armouring. Confirming my petition for the recources, a farmer about 100 years ago, thoughtfully piled up stones from the field so that today I only had to move them a short distance down hill to the job site. It's a great thing that even non believers benifit from the prayers & effort of the faithfull. Enjoy the not so dreaded climb now. I hope & pray that within a week, we will get a light soaking rain to bed in the fill dirt & expose the good line over the rocks. Oh ya, the good line is the high line on the right hand side of the trail (unless you prefer to ride over roots on the lh side).
