Tire swings & Dancers on the West Fence

This past Saturday Jared, Tucker, Kerri, Dustin, Libby, & Toby went to the ranch to work and to have fun.  First we installed 2 new tire swings.  They are just for small children, the ropes are not strong enough to hold anyone over 80 lbs.  There is a tire for 3 kids to sit on together and then another vertical one for just one kid to use.  It was a lot of fun and a little bit of work to get it done.  We had to drill holes in the tires to drain water and also to attach the rope.  It was quite the work getting the rope over the tree limb as well.  After multiple throws from Jared, Tucker, and Dustin we finnally got the ropes attached to the tree so the kids can now play on the new swings.  They are located in the cottonwoods just at the bottom of the 'Flat Iron'.

After we finished the swings we finally went up to try to work on the West Fence again.  We were able to get about 1/3 of the dancers cut and installed on that fence line.  There is still a lot of work to do but we were able to get a lot of what we needed to do done.  It was a great Saturday up there, no rain either.

We also appreciate everyone not having any fires up there.  The state has removed it's ban on fires in the area.  The area up there does look green and nice but it is still pretty dry.  We are asking everyone to still refrain from any fires up there!!!  Thank you!!!
