Clearing the way for my planned solar project.

So this is the view from my back door looking at the steps that go up the hill that is about 2/3rds of my backyard. Click the image to zoom in and see the notes on there.

Here is a closeup of those steps. As you can see I need to clear a bunch of bushes and tree branches out of the way of the steps.
The view from the top step you can see in the previous picture. As you can see it is all broken and mostly a pile of rocks. There is a small landing under those rocks and a section of wall made out of rock and concrete.
And this is a view of where I want to make the steps go to. There are actuall a couple of steps up there that haven't completely fallen apart, but I can't get to them yet.

So I got to clearing the branches. It took a couple of hours. Some of them were filled with sharp spikey things I got poked a few times.

Okay, so here is the view up the steps after I cleared the branches and stuff.
Theres the pile of rocks I need to dig up.

And here's more rock I have to dig up. You can also see the few more steps up there that I want to get to.
