WELL NOW...that was "fun".
Shoveling two tons of gravel in the August heat is a great way to burn off some weight. I suspect about half of it is water of course, but still...
All of the various that needed patching have been attended to. The section I think I'm happiest with is along the driveway where there were some minor ruts from drainage over the years. There's a section below the driveway that has always been problematic as water coming down the hill moves a lot of it, and there are a couple of sections above the house towards the solar shed that also needed some top cover bolstering. While I was up there I took the chance to clean up a lot of the larger rock that was clearly not part of the road and tossed them down into the culvert to amend that whole drainage concern another notch.
I think things went well enough. Of course I won't really know until it rains. If it's a nice and gentle rain a lot of the gravel will get set into the road. On the other hand if it's a gully washer a lot of the gravel will get washed downhill towards the culvert I'm tossing the larger rock into. I reckon we'll see of course....that's life in Colorado!
