"The Gates" Covered in Snow

POST #    1536

I have finally seen the start of The Gates by Christo and Jeanne-Claude. Earlier this month, I briefly tried to find them, but had no luck . Sunday, it seemed like they were all over the place, but they were covered in snow. The orange markers were still visible, as were some other things...like dog pee! Well, I assume it's dog pee. Of course, this makes me wonder what has been happening all this time. Have dogs been treating the metal bases as a fire hydrant, urinating and marking territory every 10 feet?

The bases were all covered in snow, which made it difficult to walk on them. It was fun though.

Well according to law, Christo needs to re-pee on the markers if he wants to reclaim them from the area dogs (or doggz).

Is that what you were trying to do when you fell all over them??!! :) It looked more like you were hugging them, not walking on them!

What????? you can walk on them, i dont get. nothing like having 26 years of your work destroyed by dog pee, horizontally challenged humans, and snow.

of course you can walk on them. i mean, the bases are made of metal. i'm sure that was taken into consideration. besides, there's nothing up right now anyway.

great, thanks keith. i really was trying to walk, but you can't see where they are with all that snow, so i kind of fell.
