Nope, but you've got me curious. Doesn't appear to be over any of the Colorado River sections, unless it's north of Powell.

Yep looking straight at Parker dam. Springs on the left.
So cool how they pull that water off. I think I can even see those friggin dunes down in distance by Echo Park Resort... my body still hurts from the four wheeling we did one night.

That's what I initially thought, then I thought the bridge over the Bill Williams was a dam, because the Bill Williams reed area looked like another downstream lake --- Duh ๐Ÿฅด

So I started this homemade retaining rock wall today. No experience but seems pretty simple with what I'm thinking. Anyway dug out to place a couple rocks than came time to place them. Moved the 2 largest from the pile below and it was fucking tough. Like 80% of what I got, bear hugging the damn things. Not doing that again without the tractor.

Educate me please.... I saw that last week on way home from Cat Fest but nobody in truck knew anything..... thx
I donโ€™t really know the origin of the shoe trees. There are many shoe trees across the country. I think that this one was a building or gas station that was out of business and people started to put up the shoes. I also think that the building burnt down once and the shoes were started up again.

Isn't the "shoe tree" on Rice Rd at the entrance to the old Rice AAFB? Don't know how far back it dates or if the tradition has anything to do with the military. The tree itself burned back in the middle aughts...

My dad was stationed in Rice on maneuvers? in '60 or '61. He was assigned to the mail run to Parker daily.

Since it appears it's been dug out of conrete, just fill it up, yer good to go ๐Ÿ˜ I've trench through my share of caliche, but damn, you must be sitting on a mountain of it. :oops:
Fuck caliche, that stuff literally has a higher psi rating than concrete. My house is on a bed of it. Planted my wifes flower garden a month ago using my makita rotohammer set on hammer mode. When my water main broke, we abandoned the original line and dug a new trench. I subbed that shit out to day laborers in front of the nursery.
