The "concrete" back walls for the Dinky shed are in now... and 6' of redwood ties are glued in place.

Larry, you're getting the Black Hills look just right!  Now you just need a few hundred ponderosa pine trees.

Keep up the good work!

Si,
My ties are 1 3/4" x  5/16" x 1/4". They were cut from a clear redwood 1" x 6" plank on my 10" table saw. I won't have enough ties so will have to find another clear redwood plank. Clear redwood is getting harder to find and is quite expensive compared to other soft woods. I now have 11' of ties glued in place. I'll be using code 100 rail for my track.

James,
No bazillion Ponderosa trees for me.  I plan to model a area of the "hills" that is more arid than most parts. For example:inside the city limits of Rapid City, the East side of "M" hill is very much like Arizona, hot and dry. Even some of the vegetation resembles that in Arizona.
Unfortunately, half of the East side of "M" hill just burned taking out most of the few trees we had there. The West side, where most of the trees are, was untouched by the fire.

Two 11 year old boys, playing with fire works, started the fire and are being charged with arson since they have started other fires too.

Well the M hill will be blooming by next year I suppose.

But on a serious note, I hope those kids learn that when you have a burn ban in effect in South Dakota, it should not be taken lightly.

About 5 years ago someone dropped a match near the reservation.  Within 2 days it had burned around 11,000 acres.

Oh well, at least that will simplify the scenery process a bit.  Keep up the good work!

--James

Painted the hill side, not sure if I like the gray, a little dark for the Black Hills.

Looks great. Now, a little closer view of the lady might be OK also.
Keep it up, nice rock work.
