The weather looks great next Saturday so it's tough to compete with getting out and going for a ride...but here goes anyway!:

"Second Third Saturday Coe Trailwork" is January 19, 2008. Meet at Hunting Hollow @ 9am.

"Tools are provided. We will be working on drainage and tread on Spike Jones and Grizzly Gulch. Bikes are okay to bring and use on the short ride to the work area. Hiking is convenient as well. Please dress comfortably in layers and in clothes you don't mind getting dirty.Bring water and food and shoes to work in. Protective eyewear is strongly advised. We have gloves, but you may find your own are more comfortable.

We will work until 1:30 pm. Those of us with bikes are invited to do a modest ride following the trail work to include the descent and investigation of the new Grapevine Trail alignment."

To ensure that there are enough tools and equipment to go around, please let Paul Nam know if you are coming by posting here or emailing: [email protected].

I will be there,
///Charlie

I'm going on a field trip with my daughter. Bummer, kinda.

What's wrong with the current grapevine tr alignment?
Grapevine has been totally rerouted in one section. I think it will be nice when done. It will make Grapevine a good option for climbing into Coe.

Yesterday ten of us worked on the drainage on Anza and Jackson trails. Big "Thanks!!!" to John "Redpine88", Dan "Dan51", Shiloh "The Law", Dan & Shiloh's friend David, Roy "plymmer", Joe from SLO, Valerie, Chris, and Paul for working on my favorite climb.

Driving through rural Gilroy in the morning on the way to Coe; one of those sign that you just have to stop and take a picture of...



The group assembles in the morning:



Shiloh, Dan, and David strike their best CalTrans pose:



A break in the work to photograph an Acorn Woodpeckers' granary tree:



I thought the granary tree would look cool in black & white but first adjust your monitor's brightness and contrast controls so that you can see every one of the patches from black through to white:

After the trailwork, we had time for a fun little ride in the setting sun. Anza > Jackson > Elderberry Spring > Rock Tower > Domino Pond > Cattle Duster > Coit Springs > Grapevine > Anza. Here's Shiloh at Cattle Duster & Grapevine:

Many thanks to you all. I hope to get back to Coe in the next month or so to sample the fruits of your labor. :)

Excellent pictures guys, thanks!

Dan - please pass on our appreciation to David. In his first picture, it
took me a couple minutes to figure-out that the two little white squares
in the middle were the surveying flags. (His b&w made that little
grayscale monitor tune-up worthwhile, eh?)

Plim - hope to ride with you again soon; there are a few new things to
show you out of Hunting Hollow without riding too very far.

Yeah....

Like going to Grizzly Gulch Falls. Supposed to be a 70 ft. drop. I have to see that this year.

Roy.

I hear that the work has been holding up pretty well; here are a few more pix from the work day, and thanks to everyone who showed up to help.
