It’s only about half as tall as it will be (hopefully) when we’re done.  Now, let’s zoom in for a close up:

You can (sorta) see that the wall leans back – into the hill mountain – and that’s intentional.  It helps the wall combat the weight of the hill.  That and the concrete we’re using as mortar.
