Day 2 (4/19/09)
Oh the woe. Everything was destroyed. Even the tie builds which had made it through the winter were destroyed. Somebody had gone down the trail and systematically smashed every sculpture they came to. It had been no small task, since many, like “The Boat works” were quite substantial. At first, the shear devastation was hard to deal with, but after reconstructing a few and realizing that we could actually make them better this time around our spirits lifted. I still do not entirely understand why somebody would want to destroy our sculptures but I do understand that if you build in a public place it is others right to destroy them. There were a few people on the trail so we were not able to reconstruct all of the downed sculptures but we did the ones we could and built a couple of new ones. So far this spring we have been on foot because we are having our bikes serviced but we will get them this week. I can’t wait.
