The Ten Acre Woods

Thirty years ago, me and my wife Karen, played Lewis and Clark. We cleared a path through the “Ten Acre Woods” to the creek. I know, what a great wife and she likes my tractor. Anyway, over the years the path has become overgrown. Today, we are back to road building. 

This is Eloise. Hopefully we will be able to ride Eloise back to the creek at some point.

The terrain is very rough and hilly. Unfortunately, camera images just don't show how hilly it really is. This photo below shows the path that we have cleared.

While clearing the path, we ran across an old trash pile. It appears to go back to the 40s, 50s, and 60s. I found some bottles and must say that I recognize some of the brands. Can you find the "Champagne of Beers" bottle?
Eloise is ready to start down the path. However, it will take a few weeks or even months before the trail is completed because of the weather and it's busy season for my business, Leo Lakes Decor Maps.  

Believe it or not, a road went through here years ago and it shows how much cutting that I need to do.   
Stay tuned, I will provide updates. By the way, checkout my lake decor maps at
