gray mountain

southwest crew - yote, me, joerael

Long day; I'll start at the end.  As Joerael and I were putting up the last piece, Garland, a guy from the community who'd stopped to talk with us, looked up and said "....O shit!  There's an accident happening!"  I looked up to see a white SUV about 100 yards away rolling over several times in a cloud of dust.  It was absolutely surreal.

I jumped into my car and drove to the site in a culvert where the vehicle came to rest upside down.  The passenger was already out of the vehicle and was alert, oriented x 3 and in no acute distress.  The driver was alert but still restrained in the vehicle.  Other people were on the scene by this point and we were able to free the driver.  Amazingly, no one was injured.

Meanwhile, it was great reconnecting with Yote and meeting Joerael to hit Gray Mountain.  Ed Singer, painter, traditional elder and Cameron Chapter President, stopped by with Sonja Horoshko to give us love and support.  I'd really hoped Ed would paint something but he seemed happy spreading wheat paste and stabilizing the ladder for me.  As always, it was great having people from the community come hang out with us.

Wow. What a day, Chip! Glad to hear everyone is alright and you could assist. Lucky for them. The update to the tanks look groovy as ever! Love the roadside stand too. Thanks for the inspiration! Be well~ peace
