August 10 - In preparation for installation of the large new solar energy system at Indian canyon, friends of the canyon met to pour the slab for the battery shed. Joe, Kym, Sammy, Kanyon, Marie, Julio I & II, Ann Marie, Russ and several more did the work, had some fun, and had a great lunch. Thank you all!
