Moving the Mountain

OK, so it wasn’t quite the mountain, but still…..

Our cabin, while perched on a mountain top, is surrounded by quite a bit of lawn.

And scattered throughout the lawn are lovely rounded rocks, sticking their little heads up out of the dirt, ready to cause bodily damage to lawnmowers. (I speak from experience, trust me.) This year, due to the aforementioned “experience”, the rocks were given a nice coat of yellow paint so they were plainly visible to the oncoming mower.

However, my guy felt that the most offensive of the rocks (remember that “experience”) needed a more permanenant solution –
REMOVAL.
Get out the shovel, the pry bars, the tow rope and have the 4Wheel drive truck handy.
The Rock
(see the yellow on the top of the rock – that’s what was showing.)

OK, let’s try it from this angle

Nope.
Perhaps some additional consultation would help.

And the final big pull from our faithful truck –

Now we just need to figure out how to fill that big hole, ’cause it certainly could do as much damage as the rock!

  1. Wow! Hard to believe that little bit sticking out was hiding such a huge rock! Why didn’t Josiah just lift it out? 😉
