Wore out three sets of tires already!
I found a nice drystacked stone wall on my ride through downtown and the 'hood.
The mostly Flightliner went with me.
I got home just in time to find out I had a
slow leak that turned into a flat. First one in a while.

Good morning and Happy Stonework Saturday to all. I hope that everyone had a great week. Not much riding here snow, snow, then a little more snow lol. I did manage to get out for a few rides though. Thank you for posting your AWESOME Stonework pictures here. I look forward to seeing them every week. One from a ride this week and one from earlier. Be safe and have fun everyone.

Love seeing old drill marks in stone, they tell story.

This one is a throwback. Several years ago I was privileged to be involved in the restoration of part of Opus 40, sculpture garden made from an old Bluestone quarry near Saugerties, N.Y. It was constructed by Harvey Fite, who was a sculpture professor at Bard College & was damaged by hurricane Irene. Bard College counts some famous people among their alumni & is immortalized in the iconic Steely Dan song, My Old School. Chevy Chase, Larry Hagman & Blyth Danner went there. It was Chevy started the funding for the project. Harvey Fite envisioned it taking 40 years to complete as a backdrop for his sculptures. As he worked on it for 36 years, until his accidental death, it became the sculpture itself. I learned a lot on this project, working under the best dry stone waller in the world, Sean Adcock. Seeing an old New York Bluestone quarry up close & personal, what it took to get good stone out of it & the huge amount of waste stone left over. We were hitting the trash piles for our wall stone. Good time had by all.

Great pic,killer bike and awesome place. It must have been incredible getting to do anything there. You need 2 days to fully appreciate that place, he actually brought in other sculptures to complete it. He knew he could not fill that whole space with just his work.

I took the new-to-me JC Higgins tank bike for a maiden voyage/ride. She's quiet and fast, so we were able to sneak up on some stonework. I just found out she's a 51 Westfield /Columbia.
It's another great day in the PNW, and a great day for a ride. I have a few more parts to find, and I'll get the rear rack installed too.
