The AZT’s north exit/entrance to the Picket Post trailhead has always been a little obscure; hikers unfamiliar with the area have trouble spotting it. This looked like a good location for one of the “really cool signs” that trail-friendly artist/welder Rob Bauer has been making for the trail.

Rob made the sign; all that remained was to plant it. Pablo with the FS arranged for some mechanical assistance from Thom on the Fire crew; John and Shawn brought the sign and materials; Bill and Nancy showed up to help as well. All convened at 9:30 and got to it. Previous installations at the trailhead encountered bedrock a few inches below ground. Thom, who’s been around a while, recalled installing the perimeter fence and the steel AZT sign when the trailhead was constructed. He had to rent a back hoe-mounted hammer to break up the rock for the holes. Luck ran with the crew today, just hard-packed rocky dirt that broke up fairly easily, especially with the electric hammer. The hole was dug, the cement was mixed on the tarp and poured around the sign, and everyone was on their way by 11:00. Thanks to all, another great day on the AZT!
