(the inuk-thingy of the lower yard)
Betty, mid-summer 2014, decided that this was blocking crucial water for some plants behind it. So, I re-assembled nearer the pool — also shown above with the 2 dogs.
This is 9-Mile InukThingy #2. We (me & tha’ dawgz) built another in the vicinity a few months ago. I didn’t take pixures, nor do I think I can find it again. This one: we could see the truck on the ridge to the north, ~ 1/2 mile away.
(and … peacock).
2nd rebuild of the inuk w/in site of Bridgeport road
We had a BIG windstorm this past week, which blew the “original” down. I told Betty I was considering doing amphipian/toadal 4-legged thingies… “why not this?” she asked.
However, it could be the genesis (seed planted), as it were, for the past-time of inuk-building was when I sighted the …
below … not what i’d call triumph. Sure, it’ll stand ’til (possibly) the next windstorm. i just didn’t channel the volition (and also felt that the location and materials and ‘vibe’ were not optimal). a practice run …
This is the Inuk-thingy of the ridge south(east) of the East Pass into Cactus Park. also built mid-November — so you can see that winter is not only ‘mild’, it hasn’t yet arrived. Doolie poses with the ‘thing.’
a week passed Solstice, 2012: the Whitewater original inuk is impervious to the weather, and everything else
the north Whitewater inuk, grokking along with the yucca
yucca-grokking is sometimes not sufficient for stability, as this inuk fell or was knocked over. or just got tired …
so i rebuilt one night in March 2014.
midJanYooWary (’13) we encountered a ‘thingy’ in the Olivivas Wilderness Area. Sleven walks by …

“Horse Head” inuk in the moonlight.
the Inuk-Thingy within sight of Wombat Arch
The two upper yard inuk-thingies had been basking in the sun most of April, then …
above: not built by me, but by Ricardo Cabeza: a Land’s End on the Grand Mesa ‘thingy’
and below: rebuilt (same location, many of same stones) small inuk-thingy pictured previously as “rock-sea & rock-gnome”. Constructed later Nov., 2013.
Another inuk appears in the “Bean Ranch” area — sunsetting later March, 2014.
an inuk-thingy further up and away from Bridgeport road
rebuild of the pool inukshuk — Betty mandated a relocation as she thought the original version blocked some plants from watering
The inuk formerly just above Wombat Arch became totally tornado-ulated (disappeared!) so this one manifested itself below the Arch.
Inuk above the “copper mines” in the Olivivas Wilderness area.
Also in the O W A, a group of rocks which, so it seemed, begged to be re-assembled. Unfortunately, kinda phallic, iddn’t it?
