thats actually a small shallow pond (the oliver is sitting on the bottom) we are standing on. we were clearing the brush off it with the oliver when one track went down. efforts to get it to climb out resulted in the state it was in for the picture. I was working on a different project at the time, but came over to assist in the extraction efforts.
course, it took a while to stop laughing and doing photo ops.
our intent is to dragline the pond to make it deep enough so trees don't grow in it. it is located next to our show field on QVEA Museum property.
