Many hands make light work, it’s said. And so it went this morning along the Fauntleroy end of the West Seattle Bridge, as a dozen-plus WS Chamber of Commerce volunteers cleaned up the slope from “Walking on Logs” to the sign with which they’re posing above.
According to Chamber board chair Nancy Woodland (of WestSide Baby), they only needed two hours to get everything picked up and bagged up. This was our photo from about midway through.

While “Walking on Logs” is on city right-of-way land, the sculpture was installed as part of the West Seattle Murals project two decades ago with the agreement that it and the area around it would be community-maintained. Murals project leader Earl Cruzen did it almost singlehandedly for years, until he was on the brink of 90; four years ago, the Walking on Logs Landscape Restoration Group formed to help, but it’s a big task and they need help too (they were out at the site a month ago).
