22. The park's first full year of development comes to a closeThe corridor that was created for the new power line provided a clear line of sight from the public road into Naturist Legacy Park's main activity area. This would be a problem for us until thick undergrowth re-established itself to block the view — something that would take several years. In late October, my wife and I started digging holes and putting in posts for a tall privacy fence. This difficult task was made a bit easier when a fellow member arrived to help us. We later braced the posts and added cross rails. A fellow director helped us attach sheets of used plywood and OSB that had been donated by members.
In mid-November, a light snowfall permitted my wife and I to begin burning branches and brush that had been accumulating all summer and fall. We were joined on the weekend by a large group of volunteers who used two trailers to bring load after load after load of branches and brush from the meadows and elsewhere to the fire. The park was left clean and serene, finally free from all of the unsightly piles that had been with us for so long.
Another snowfall at the very beginning of December finally brought all work at the park to a close.
