still photos from the big day

i've made a gallery of photos from tuesday's final push to finish the wind turbine. the pictures are in chronological order. unfortunately i was too late this morning to catch the whole crew for a crew photo, but i did meet kirk ilenda of Boldt's business development manager for their minnesota operations. he emailed me a photo he took of the Boldt millwright crew this morning (in the fog); it's the last photo in the gallery.
