There was benching north of the first crossing, benching done between the two crossings and then lot's and lot's of armoring. The northern most crossing started out with some cribbing up to the stream crossing and a little armoring job and then it grew into some mega cribbing on the scale of Hadrian's Wall.
There used to be just enough room to get by that big tree on the left but the guys felt that it should be a little bit wider
The final touches are put into place. Off to the left, Tom and Cindy decided that a go around was necessary because the surface to the left of the tree was too uneven from all the rocks that were excavated. Only, now there needs to be some more benching done there. Next time I suppose.
Now that's armoring a stream bed!
