It's Hot Up in Here.....

Crew Volunteer, Jason Hammer checks out his work.

Melissa strikes a pose.

Hisako smiles for the camera despite the warm temps (notice she's wearing long sleeves?!).

Well, week #11 has come and gone and we're gearing up for week #12 here at base camp. The crews were able to complete another round of projects last week at Angel's Gap and Rufus Morgan despite some pretty warm temperatures. And, with summer in full swing that means only two things, swimming and cookouts! While Ted and the rest of Crew #1 enjoyed a cookout courtesy of the Roanoke Appalachian Trail Club, Crew #2 spent some refreshing afternoons cooling off in the Nantahala River.

Nantahala Hiking Club members place stakes on a newly installed waterbar.

The pile O' stakes...

You would think after hard trail work the last thing on your mind would be push-ups...but at least it's in the river.....

Also, while on the project last week, reporters wrote an article for the Roanoke Times about RATC's 75th anniversary. The article also has some quotes from the "seriously bearded" Ted Wilson, check it out here.
