Prepare yourself, the next two posts will be heavy on the photos.
After we'd rented out some of the land for a gas pipeline, we were approached by the same company about renting out a temporary work-space. They needed space in our hayfield to work on running the pipeline under the creek.
Farmer John and I worked with the pipeline company to come up with a contract that made everyone - but especially us - happy. We were concerned with what they would be doing and for how long they would be doing it. We look out on this hayfield from the house, as well as use the hay to feed the cattle.
At the very end of the hayfield, they built a temporary bridge across the creek. Yes, the pipeliners had a bridge before we did.
It's been interesting to watch this whole process happen in our backyard, but I for one won't miss them when they are gone. Check back tomorrow for more photos of heavy equipment in the hayfield.
