Creek Crossing

Ford PostThe only thing I want to add to Anna's post about building the ford with cinder blocks would be a close up of one of the fence posts that we hammered in next to some of the blocks. These posts got sunk into the ground several feet, which is what anchors the whole structure and prevents any shifting of the blocks. If I had to build another one tomorrow I would use the slightly chipped discounted bricks as I'm sure now that you would get the same effect.

Here is a short video clip of a leaf crossing the ford just because it can. I think this leaf is proof that Autumn has established a firm foot hold back in the woods here.
