The stairway cover project is complete! It was actually finished more than a week ago,
but the time got away from me to post about it. The junk still needs to be moved from

Keith coming over for dinner Sunday night with the rest of the family. It was raining

hadn't seen the mountains to the south for 9 years.

We also have a drainage problem running along the edge that will be fixed.
This will be a rock wall and parking for our trailers and tractor.
The first scoop...
