The Tower is Down

 Less than a week to go until the season starts! 

Today was our first day in the field doing prep work for the season.  The fun started in Grid 47 where we tackled the Stone Tower, two years worth of stacked stone that need to be moved ahead of end of season photos.

It's not a job for the faint of heart.  Lots of sun and only a little ;water -- the park was having water issues -- but a very nice breeze.  On the balance, a good morning.

The first stone was lifted around 7:30 in the morning.










The last stone was moved around 11:30.  What's left requires sledgehammers.  Ahh, the fun we had.

A big Grid 47 thank you to Josh, Ben and David!




Tomorrow we will be hanging shadecloths, organizing the pottery compound and continuing our various research projects.
