    Great job. I've been wanting to build a combined scale and rally rc area for a long time. The scale stuff really fills out the infields of a nice rally course.

    Really developing into an awesome crawler course. Love the Ralleye course woven in.
    If you build it, We will watch!

    A few more changes since last update.
    I put this stair climb type area up over the fake mine shaft and move some stuff around on top so there's more options for lines.

    Some more changes happening. I decided to re-route some of the rally sections and terrace the hill a little more to prevent washouts and provide more spots for crawling sections. The rally course will wrap and wind around a little more. Hard to describe but you'll see it progress.

    rally section will be re-routed into the grass area in this photo:

    More dwarf trees will live in this area with rocks and a terraced path for the trail section.

    stay tuned! :)

    Hooray for tiny trees. They are my favorite part of RC landscaping.

    I love buying dwarf spruces! I'm trying to buy one each weekend!

    Still gathering up more rocks!

    Scored a couple of monsters today! These were too big for my VW so I borrowed my fathers truck to move them.

    Got the big whiter colored rock (my guess is it's granite, but I could be wrong) into place and transplanted some moss around it to get it started.

    I like the Dwarf Alberta Spruces. The deer don't bother them, unlike the Arborvites that they'll just mow down. Spruces look cooler anyway.

    Today I scored this 16" wooden canoe to fit to my Land Rover roof rack.

    Such a nice looking scale park. That mine entrance is great detail!
