Great shot! Did it thicken up as the season went along? I note it's a late Dec. '07 timeframe.

That shot(s) was actually taken in Feb. 06, the top 5 pitches were farmed. Early season P's 8-10 showed first, with a smattering of ice between it and the natural flows (P's 1-5). We were anxious for P5 to come in so we could see some "new" terrain. P7 was the last pitch to fully form, in climbing shape for about 10 days. Luckily there was a walk-around to bypass this, and it was frequently utilized. :)
