Checking for fire damage

The huge ‘international wall’, built by our students during the very ambitious Stone Foundation stone symposium of January 2011 at Grant Park in Ventura, was completely surrounded by the recent fires that raged in this area for days last month, but the dry stone wall and ramparts remained miraculously untouched. Chared earth and blackened branches could be seen within inches of the structures.    More photos to follow .

Much of Grant Park suffered considerable fire damage . It will be closed for a while .

  1. Thanks for checking this out John, looking forward to seeing more pics. I was glad to see the the tree in front of the ramparts was only singed and that magnificent eucalyptus on the horseshoe curve leading up to the park was untouched.
