Another Ride in Carnation Valley

As expected, I woke up this morning virtually crippled from the Chirico trail hike.  My muscles really hurt!  Stairs in particular are a problem.  We did the Carnation Valley ride to loosen things up.
This weekend is the Evergreen Classic Benefit Horse Show.  The number of temporary buildings, trailers, and porta potties is just amazing.  Horse events require infrastructure.

A big honking horse trailer.  Note the lift gate in the back.  We were somewhat surprised it's not air conditioned.

Then it was time to check on progress at the road closure.  A concrete thing that funnels water (what would you call that?) has been put in place.  The lids for it can be seen behind it.

This is a very large back hoe.  Note how tiny Jim looks next to it.

The flower fields are in full bloom.  There are many sun flowers.

Other than that, we have zippity doo-dah all to report.
