Several years ago we placed a sign in the wrong location, my fault. Not that it would get anyone lost, there is just a better way than the sign, in its wrong location, indicated. Well-meaning (I suppose) individuals defaced the sign in attempts to correct the message. That required replacing the sign rather as well as moving it.

Drove through spots of fog going over the rim on FR300 to the AZT/General Springs vicinity, overloaded a backpack with the new sign and tools, and walked down the trail. Views to the south were spectacular with the heavy overcast. Fortunately the rain went off to the west.

It took a bit to find the sign, having come from below to place it. Fortunately, the moist sandy soil gave way and the post was soon loose, then drug up the hill to the new location. Digging the post hole went fine, again the moist sandy soil was easy digging. It pained me to re-set the pine post, which will soon rot off but there aren't any junipers within several miles and I don't envision hauling one down the trail anyway. Pine posts are abundant and nearby. With the old sign as a template, we drilled holes in the new sign and bolted it on, then trimmed and chamfered the post. All done, but for the climb back up the hill.

It amazes me how long it takes to get on top of these little nagging chores, several more to do on the trail, and at home.
