Still game!

Before we get jumped on, the question then as now is whether the Preserve thinks such a thing is appropriate and whether they would allow it. Neither Rick nor I contemplated just going up there and doing such a thing.

By the way, I understand that imbedded rocks retard washing away of soil, but it seems to me that rocks that are just scattered on top do not significantly restrict drainage and so their removal would not accelerate erosion.

There is, however, no question that over the years, well before Rob and I carted away a few rocks, a deep erosion channel was formed up there.
