[singlepic id=138 w=320 h=240 float=left]Anyone who has been following this blog for any amount of time should know that the weather has been less than kind to us as of late. However, the sun has been shining the past couple days, plans to continue to do so through the weekend, and we are quickly getting back to our scheduled pace of progress.

Today, we had the privilege of watching the crew put up the poles for the second platform and took an up close look at the finished pole placement of the first platform. We always had a basic idea of how the platforms would be erected and have already seen a few of the poles in position, but to actually see the crew raise them is quite simply amazing! Words won’t even begin to do it justice, and while pictures don’t quite capture the moment in its entirety either, we do have quite a few images of the morning’s activities that you can view in our image gallery.[singlepic id=143 w=320 h=240 float=right]

Aside from continuing to erect platform poles, we also had a ton – maybe not literally a ton, but it had to be close – of dirt brought to the property. As should be expected, it is next to impossible to find a flat square foot of ground amidst the Ozark hills, and we will be using the dirt to help flatten the areas where the gift shop and parking lot are set to be built.

We will be away for a couple of days, but hope to have much more to report come Monday. With that said, let us call it an early weekend, and get outside and enjoy ourselves… it may still be cold, but at least the sun is back!
