These photos were actually taken later in the same day that the gravel was delivered (see the previous post from Tuesday) … I’m just a bit late in posting them here.

The big pile of nearly 70 tons of gravel became this, which Mick is spreading here with his trusty … whatever this machinery is called …

someone told me that it was difficult to get a sense of scale from these photos, so if you’ll look to the left … there’s the hill

And, voila, a level creek bed and ramps up and down the hillsides leading into and out of the creek.

a lovely, gravel-y creek bed; at the end there (where the pile of dirt is) will be a dam, so this will actually end up as more of a pond than a creek
