Day 2, Wyoming

We put in the first curving line of logs and the centre of the vortex, pinning them in place with re bar. There was talk of creating a bonfire over the top to char the logs, but there is concern from the authorities so, we will revert to plan B which was to use a propane burner, which will work well as the logs are very dry. Beetle are still coming out of them!

The coal has also been delivered and there are some beautiful large lumps. It is mined in open pits and the seam is 200' deep with very little sulphur, as the forest swamp in which it formed was fresh water. Tomorrow we will try and char the centre, weather permitting - There have been quite a number of thunder storms coming through and they are not done yet.

At the back of my mind I am still thinking of a cloud chamber sited near the museum, put underground, but projecting the wide expanse of sky, which in Wyoming is always mind blowing.
