Old Fence Behind Spruce Mountain


If you are hiking behind along the 307 trail, eventually you'll run into this old log fence. And if you are riding a mountain bike, you'll get off and "wiggle" your way through a small opening ... I love to see the fence - everytime I ride. It is a reference point for me to let me know that I have reached a point and it gives me an idea how much more I have left to ride. I cannot even imagine as to why this fence was first put in place there? Cattle on top of the Spruce Mountain? At around 8000 feet? I don't know. Nowaydas, this trail is a well traveled trail. Lots of hikers, bikers and even the horseback riders frequent the trail. Check it out!

When we had gobs of trees in Ohio, some were split but for the most part they made fences like this one to keep the cows, horses, pigs and sheep in.

Nice photo.

For us old folks, it is a weary time of year. So as it winds down may I wish you and your family a very happy and healthy holiday and a prosperous new year.

It was one day when my late husband & I were driving down from Big Bug Mesa and I happened to glance at a hillside...that I because completely aware that cattle were mountain animals. They were quite happy up there on a big slant!
