Nine photos and NOTES FROM TASSAJARA

The road into Tassajara became impassible a couple of weeks ago...a massive snow storm left 5 foot high drifts up on the ridge.....my crew finally made it in after almost 10 days of closure....the dramatic mountains, recently burned, were covered with a beautiful white blanket.

Gene, June and Bill Steele's crew managed to get the Bath House slab hand poured and the "Bird House" foundation complete. With the oversight of Steve Stucky and David Zimmerman we worked till midnight one night finishing the concrete slab before Seshin.

We have preframed the walls in our shop and are heading to Tassajara tomorrow.

Spring is close at hand and I can see flowers popping through the snow and ash.

"IT SNOWED HEAVILY

ON THE RIDGE...THE DRIFTS WERE HIGH

BUT WE WENT RIGHT THROUGH !"

There's a lot of old material that's as good as new if you haven't read it. -DC
