Saturday i posted some photos of the blasting they did for the new Sonics Restaurant that is going in next door. And some of you had some questions that i would like to answer.
I can't believe they did any work that made a disruption to households before 8:00 AM
Why are they doing this?
Located in the Deschutes National Forest is Newberry National Volcanic Monument near Bend, where NASA astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin trained for lunar explorations between 1964 and 1966. Today, visitors can walk alongside the world's largest obsidian flow, trek through the Lava Cast Forest, venture into the Lava River Cave, climb to the top of Lava Butte to examine the region's ancient volcanic features, and visit the Lava Lands Visitor Center.
They dug this hole so they can put in storm drain pipes.
And the last photo is the truck that hauls off a lot of the rocks to have recycled for smaller rocks .
