The quite closeby marker Triangles tells much of the story, because this is one of the few Kcymaerxthaere Historic Sites which is entirely sculptural and visual (though there are some rather fascinating No Trespassing signs). That said, one can sense the feeling of the impact site from what was less than a single fragment of grain of sand sent explosively here at the cataclysmic conclusion of the Battle of Some Times.
This was the 72nd installation of the Kcymaerxthaere project and it took over one Pezhephen Year to complete. Some of the images below will show massive flooding—a huge New Mexico monsoon came through on our first attempt and we were rained out completely, with the massive trucks almost stuck in the mud. Green and black toads emerged from the Earth. It was incredible. It took 2 and a half linear years to regroup with another teams and come back and finish.
It is accessible any time of day or night, as long as you are patient, careful and respectful to the site. It’s about 21 miles from the Akela Flats offramp for I-10. Basically you head west on NM-549 towards Deming, NM for about 5 miles. Then you take a left on Franklin and stay on it for about 13 miles. It actually is not a straight-line road, jogging left and then right—so it continues heading south. Finally you take a RIGHT on a dirt road called Palo Alto and go to the fence line (not too far), take a RIGHT. Go to the 4th street down and lake a LEFT, go down about 200 feet and it is on the right. Street is called Gaviota.
There has not been a formal dedication as such, though members of the border patrol visited us after we were done. They were quite friendly.
This was Kcymaerxthaere installation #073 and the thirty-ninth in the linear United States.

The First Installation attempt
These images show the flooding of the site during a New Mexican Monsoon. We got the first load stones delivered and the trucks out just minutes before the dirt road would have been impassable. It was over two linear years before we could try again.
