We're Rocking Here at Camp

We decided that we needed to move the rock retaining wall by cabins 8 and 9 back into the bank by about 4 feet to make more room for parking so vehicles parked there would not be so close to the road. What a job!!

John used the backhoe to gather up all the old rocks from the previous wall and dump them in a pile at the back end of the camp. He then used the bucket to dig into the bank and then scoop up four feet deep of soil.

After angling it and raking it smooth, we laid down landscaping cloth to prevent grass and weeds from growing through the rocks.

The final stage was the most back breaking and time consuming. John brought down bucket load so new rocks and laid them in piles along the wall. Then my brother Rick, Joanna, John and I hand placed every single rock to finish the wall. So thankful that one is checked off the list!!
Recently John used the backhoe to bring down more blue rock to cover the exposed gravel. It looks so nice.
