Water Bar MarkersPosted: December 7, 2013 Filed under: Maintenance | Tags: LTBMU, Placer, Rubicon Leave a comment
Technically, they are rolling dips not water bars but for years we’ve referred to them as water bars (WBs). They were installed in 2001 and every year we do maintenance on these WBs, some getting more attention than others. In order to properly document our work or communicate which WB needs work, we needed to number them. They were numbered at one point but with weather and some vandalism, there were more unmarked than marked.
Last week, John Briggs of the North Tahoe Trails Dusters, placed new markers on almost every WB. The Rubicon Trail Foundation provided the materials and John welded them up.
Unfortunately, he didn’t have a camera with him when he was installing them. So, I’ll get pictures next spring of one or two of these actually placed, after the snow melts.
