Stonemasons go old-school to repair Colorado monument walls

Perched on a ledge above Monument Canyon, stonemason Scott Banjac of Fruita applies a special mortar in between the red sandstone rocks along Rimrock Drive as a crew of stone masons rebuild the rock guardrails in the Colorado National Monument near Fruita on Sept. 11. The crew is using a mortar made of lime, sand and Portland cement that is similar to the mortar that the original Civilian Conservation Corps builders of the wall used.
