JB has family who are big into construction – as in dirt movers, digging gravel, and road grading. This is one of the big excavators owned by his nephew, Jerry, and that is me running it, digging a hole. What an adrenalin rush. Definitely right up there on the list of significant experiences in my life.
Many years ago JB’s brother was working on preparing a street for repaving, and as they were digging a hole, probably for a sewer catch basin, they found a hole. No one knew it was there until they dug it up. It made the local newspaper.
We have come across a lot of holes as we traveled the continent from coast to coast. This hole was made by nature, at Gros Morne World Heritage park in Newfoundland.
This hole in the mountain was tediously carved by workman with very primitive means in order to protect the environment. It is a part of Going to the Sun Road in Glacier National Park in Montana.
I have seen Crater Lake and my heart still skips a beat when I think of the power of the volcano that blew off the top of this mountain. This is a hole that has been filled with water and still looks like a hole because of the steep ridges all around the lake.
Are the oceans big holes on the earth’s surface that have filled with water?
