The ATA Sign Brigade convened at Moqui Stage station Saturday to install five new handcrafted signs.

The segment steward recruited a fantastic bunch of folks to come out for the day. The FIVE! dogs seemed to—mostly—have a great time as well.

I gathered material around Flagstaff Friday and drove out to the site, then drilled the signs for mounting on the legs. Then spent the night in the back of the ATA Toyota.

Of the 10 post holes to dig, only the two for the west sign at Moqui Stage Station hit rock--at about 18 inches. We moved 20 feet, started digging and hit it again. So these two posts are cemented into the rock, hopefully they last the 30 years that the original ones that were tamped into the dirt did; I’m not too concerned.

All the rest of the signs are mounted on posts set 30 inches deep, with two 60-lb bags of cement on each leg. Like fencing, you cannot over-build signs.

The rain cooperated all day, we drove in drizzle a couple times but when we were working it held off.

This portion of the AZT is incredibly beautiful, one of the many under-rated and maybe unappreciated stretches. It rolls along over the endless high lonesome, with huge views and open forests. The Arizona Trail just gets better.
