The last morning of our work weekend at Hart Prairie with arizonahikers.com. We once again were treated to a wonderful breakfast casserole with sausage and fruit.

Our task this day: the grey and red roads needed to be leveled. We gathered our various shapes of rakes and shovels and all managed to fit in the mule for the drive out to the road. My foot got a little wet as we went through the numerous water puddles but no worse for wear.

Diane and Tracy worked on raking the red road while the rest of us started working on the grey road. Whew was that hard work as you're constantly bent over going up and down a road. I took a few breaks to photograph and video our work but other than that, I don't think we took a break at all. Last year Diane and Tracy did both roads by themselves. I don't know how they did that. They did say it took most of the day and I can see why. Our crew this day consisted of 5 of us all together.

Once we were done with the roads, it was back to finish up the last of the chores. Mine was cleaning the outhouse. It's a very nice outhouse (composting toilets, tile, etc) with two sides. Then I loaded up Tonto as I needed to get back to start working on my mom's place readying it for sale. (and yes, over 5 weeks later we're still working on it with probaly another 3 weeks left)

I took a few photos and some video on the way out, picked up some lunch and fuel in Flagstaff and hit the road. So much for getting back to work on my mom's place. I saw a sign that said slow traffic ahead in like 10 miles or so. Well it was more like "stopped" traffic for a span of 10 miles or more. 45 minutes I figured it took me to get thru that stretch.

This is video from part of Work Day 1 and of our road work on Day 2 along with my drive from Hart Prairie. http://youtu.be/QoiX2v891yg?hd=1

For me, sometimes it's just as much about the journey as the destination.
Oh, and once in awhile, don't forget to look back at the trail you've traveled.
