Adventure courtyard at Alfred University visit

I was invited out to Alfred University in Western NY to give a talk and add something to a project Jonas Linberg(creator of the barbed wire teddy bear at b-home)is doing with his liberal arts class...
I thought, with all these skate ramps and rocking/swinging armadillo house structures, maybe a massage table would be helpful.
Here below you see Jenny Hillenbrand-(aka:Vesna) putting the table to good use for fellow mohawkians: Laura Zelda Smith and Scott Kreider

Here's an in progress overhead shot
