I've known for months that this was something I wanted to do, but I had to wait for a decent rain for the ground to be soft enough to dig. The vision in my head was to have a footbridge to cross the trench...and out of the blue, a rancher friend of mine asked me if I would like to have a footbridge. WHAT? ARE YOU PRANKING ME? HOW DID YOU KNOW I WANTED A FOOTBRIDGE????? (It was more than irony, it was FATE!) Yes! Of course I want a footbridge! So, he built this simple bridge with three planks of horse fencing and two cross pieces.
Weeks later it finally rained, and I started digging.
