My ever loving and trustworthy soul mate Pati Holman came out with me yesterday to work at the Springs. She took a day off from her work as a Feldenkrais Practitioner to play in the Sand Prairie with me. Pati has been very supportive over the last 15 years helping me out when she could at the Brady’s Rocks and Hartland Marsh projects.
We continued the effort to prepare the Indian Campground Sand Prairie for mowing and burning doing some clearing and piling in the Northeast corner. It was a hot day! Here are a couple of before shots.

It’s slow going as the area is a tangle of large dead trees interspersed with “witches broom” regrowth from the previous mowing all tied together with wild grape vines.
