It’s not a job I ever entertained, but you can’t beat the view! Well, you could – it’s quite cloudy in Seattle today. Maybe the workers will get a chance to see the Mountain before they finish.
Totem Pole Cleaners
It is difficult to see in this photo, but there are two people at the top, scrubbing the totem pole with brushes.
The scaffolds were erected yesterday, and today they started cleaning from the top. The restoration plan includes moss removal, cleaning, and bird deterrents (probably spikes); no mention whether or not they will be repainted.
