Some say the world will end with fire.

Others say with ice.

From what I've tasted of desire

I hold with those that favor fire.

But if I had to perish twice,

I think I know enough of hate,

To say that for destruction ice,

Is also great and would suffice.

Robert Frost

This road has been under construction in phases since the day I got to the District. Last week we accepted the second paving contract. Here are a couple of photos of the really sharp turn and the road below it. I am very tickled at how good it turned out and think this is probably the last pavement the road will ever see. There are still two grading phases left but I doubt they will compete well now that the competition has to go state wide starting in 2012.

I am happy that we got as far as we did during my watch-it is an amazingly nice road.

That curve looks like it would be fun to drive! But then maybe I am just envying that big wide road. Don't see many that wide here! You think I'm kidding, but I'm not.

The entire paved part of the road is fun to drive--this was the worst road on the District for many it's the best on the Forest for a couple of years anyway - until someone else gets new pavement.
