Four of us joined Bill, Sarah, Cisco and Sugar, to pack some bags of ruined concrete out of Telegraph Canyon. A fence project didn't get done in time and 19 bags of concrete were now concrete blocks. It was intended for a hanging fence across the bottom of Telegraph Canyon. The mess was just south of the main trail near a gate that ATA installed a couple years ago. Bill volunteered to bring his horses and pack it out if we could be there to help load and unload. Cisco and Sugar didn't get a say in the matter but we were all for it.

We met just off FR4 and headed down Arnett Canyon to the turnoff to Telegraph Canyon. The work along this trail is impressive-lots of reinforced trail and a stretch of rock "pitching" to hold the trail where it flooded last summer.

Loading a horse is an art; I tried to help proactively but then stepped back and did no more than exactly what I was told. Each side has to be the same weight, and it has to be well secured. And it helps a great deal to know the horse's personality. We soon had the first load ready to go and Roger and Richard took off back to the trailhead--their first equine experience if not ever then in a very long time. Bill offered some sage advice, "If there's a wreck, stay out of it."

Three more trips and the mess was cleaned up, and everyone headed for home.

Thanks to the usual crew--John, Richard, Roger--and especially to Bill, Sarah, and not least, Sugar and Cisco.
