After months of pipeline work, all the heavy equipment is gone. There's no one left working in the hayfield. A pipeline is running under a significant part of our property. The field is quiet now. No fires burning, no floodlights throughout the night, no semis. This is what's left.
A path where they'd built a temporary road. In the photo there is hay growing on the left, and the bare patches are where the field had been covered. This has not been reseeded. We will lose a significant amount of hay this year.
There is trash in the field. Including this sign.
This yellow stuff appears to be some type of foam insulation. It's scattered all over the far end of the field.
Here is the main part of the work area, with a view of where the pipeline ran up the hill. The hill has been reseeded, but the rest of the area has not.
There is a hollow (holler) just next to the large hill, where a small stream runs. Normally this stream creates its own channel and flows into the creek. Right now, it's flowing all over the bare area, making it a muddy mess down there.
This is one of patches where they had burned brush. (With Beast included for size reference.)
Finally, here's one thing we're happy about. All that wood stacked at the end of the field. It will make cutting and hauling firewood pretty easy for the next few years.
(As I finished typing this post, an excavator appeared in the hayfield, funny how that works)
