Angel's Food Cake (aka "We Came, We Sod, We Conquered")

Kelly and Dave transport gear on the Gator; thanks Dave!

Crew Volunteer, Brett H. is never short on jokes, or origional poses....

As the conclusion of another great week here are a few details/play by play statements…..

Crew 1, with help from Dave Hrdlicka (USFS), shuttled gear atop Angel's Gap with an ATV and dug nearly 800ft of sidehill with help from the Roanoke Appalachian Trail Club.
Crew 1 had many "visitors" to camp including foxes, deer, and a "bear-grouse."

Crew 1 went to eat at "The Homeplace" in Catawba and got their fill of fried chicken, mashed potatoes, green beans, coleslaw, pinto beans, country ham, corn, biscuits, peach cobbler, iced tea, lemonade, and coffee (did I miss anything?).

Crew 2 enjoyed great views atop Big Bald while working with the Carolina Mountain Club.

Crew 2 rolled sod to make way for the trail and likened the soil underneath to "cake," saying that it would be great for gardens but "we'll have to see what happens as trail".

Week six, here we come!

Roll up your sleeves and roll some sod!
