 The lower section is being repaired and is looking awesome! The PQ Rangers said that San Diego County workers are doing it?

 The Boy Scouts and SDMBA volunteers did it for the rangers. It was an Eagle Scout project! How cool is that?!

 Go BSA Eagle project! It looks and rides nice at the bottom now. The banks are kind of funky, but not much more they could do. The dirt they dug out was hard as concrete and the blocks weigh a ton! THANKS!
