Riding the Trail
This morning I took a ride on the hike and bike trail at the Mission Nature Park. There are some changes since the recent rains we had. Amongst the changes are that some of the areas along the trail are flooded. This gives the trail a little variety, seeing a change in landscape. There is even a couple spaces where the trail itself is under about an inch of water. Near the end of the trail, a trench was dug through the trail to allow drainage for the field along the trail. That will probably be repaired as soon as the area dries up a little. Finally, some of the trail is buried under dirt that has run off from the canal embankment. The trail is still there. What happened is that there is not enough ground cover to anchor the soil so it ran off with the rain onto the trail.
