    Here are some pics from 2 of the roads we plow. It sure beats the view from a parking lot.

    Here are some more pics. These are of a hydro plant that we operate. I also have a few of the inside of the plant as well.

    More pictures continued. So far this winter the snow is pretty minimal. Last winter we had to go in these roads with our loader and grader to widen out the banks 3 times over the winter.

    Now that's some nice looking country. Curious what the big galv. steel platform is? 10, 12 sided? Radio or cell transmission? Never seen anything like that. Not many hills here either.
    Looks like a several million dollar view of the hydro plant. Do you own it and sell power?

    Here are a few pics from the dam itself and the gorge on the other side of the bridge. Lastly back to the snow equipment here is a pic of our 726 and 740 champion graders.
    If you would like a personal tour of the plant and you are in the Marathon area I would be glad to take you.

    The platform is a navigation canada radar unit used for aircraft navigation.

    I wish we owned it. We just operate and maintain it for the owners.

    So far so good. It hasn't gotten much use yet. I think we have one of the lowest precipation amounts in Ontario right now.
