Looking real nice! I need to find time to start something like this, too many "honey -do" projects first.

Thank You Phred.
Time and energy fully understood.
I'm working a full time time job, plus honey do's and with all the darn wind this spring, it's been a never ending cycle of cleaning up branches and trees and starts to all the yard work.
One huge contributing factor about pumping out all the trail system when I concentrate on it.
Things could be a lot better no doubts if I slowed down :laughing:

I did run a battery out in the Black Rock Late yesterday on the trail.
Great Little truck.
Very capable .....even with the receiver hitch dragging on things and cut coils for a lower stance.
I did knock a mirror off..ooopsy.
hahahaaa
Nothing broke on it though. YAY!

Thanks again.
Hope too see you start something soon.
Bring on the inspiration. I need more Ideas.


EDIT:
The Large building is just a hoot to drive threw.
I need to add more Grey drybrushing I think to both tower and it and the little out building too.
;)

Amazing! Looks your town is developing quite well.

Thank you.
It's slowly coming around no doubts.

I drove the Black Rock shortly around the trails again late evening.
I may change up the higher up area still for a more even flow drive.
To be determined.......
I did Grey wash the tower once more. Helped a bunch, and I will be doing the large structure too.

Starting to brain storm on another structure that can be drove threw or ... on, as the old building is Just to fun to drive threw.

Ideas welcome...............

Pondering also on constructing a huge old looking pole barn that can also be drove threw for the Ranch part of things.
;)

Going to be another large structure for sure.

Thanks again.
More soon.

This is a great reference photo of some of the looks and what I'm after partly.

Lots of beautiful garden railroads my friends for ideas.
If they can do it.....so can we.
;)
I think our hobby has more freedoms, to be able to drive the trucks around.
Win Win.

Thank you.

Drove the Black Rock Jeep around one more time late afternoon again.
Parked it... And Got to blowing up a few areas that just didn't flow good OR look good driving around.
;)
Keep the eye moving, And Nothing Boring ahahahaaa.:laughing:
Had to remind myself that I wanted things to gradually elevate up wards away from the Bully barn shed so a person can stay stationary their and drive the trail.
Plus help keep foot traffic down to a minimum on the trails.
I'm leaving about a two foot border on outer fringes for a grass walking path and it changes the whole perspective looking down on everything.

You people with forests and elevations in your back yards already are lucky people no doubts..ahahaaaa
Hope it all comes around though in the next few months.

Should hopefully be back at it late today, and get some new revised pics of some areas.
Thanks for following along and hope your all enjoying the Journeys.

Thanks you
It's been work, but fun Work.
Planting the first green makes it very exciting to me.
(Baby sagebrush)

I moved mine area back a foot and reinstalled the little details too lastnight.;)
You can now drive up to and past it.

I still can't find a spot I'm happy with for the garage. UGH The struggle is real ahahahaaa

I'm now leaning towards lots of little Dwarf pine trees and Ferns to make it look like a California RedWood deep forest look.:hmmm:
But in the mean time I'll keep adding the baby sagebrush and a load or two of rock....Their free :laughing:
Hope to have another worthy update in the next few days.::2thumbs

After I was ordered to .....Build New Bird house and Bird feeder Honey.....;):laughing:

I was able to build a quick retaining wall out of 1/2"x1/2" and started another more elaborate Slightly arched bridge.

Pics coming late today as time was of the essence while constructing.

I will be blowing up the very first area of the trail from last year to make for a smoother flow, and make it more a continuous run then diving off into the back area where you can walk in the next day or two or possibly this weekend coming.
Thanks for following and more soon.

Fun to finally look at the before and after pic too.
