We used the ancient methods of pulling the slab over logs that were moved to the front of the line. At times, boards were substituted for tracks over the uneven surface. Later wheels and a cart were employed when the path presented minor obstacles. Trail crew even removed a few rocks and branches that would have hindered. but not stopped forward progress.
Participating on a very cold morning were (seated, l. to r.) Joel, Katie, Charlie and (standing) Lance, Kenneth, Al, Mark, Ben, Todd and Richard.
In the end, the new slab was cemented into place and a foot rest was also added to the amenity that gives a great field of view over the nine acre natural area.
