Bear Mountain

Finished Staircase

Highlines are being used to transport most material (i.e. rock)

Completed crib wall

Drill holes on a piece of split granite (feathers and wedges are then inserted to split the rock)

Last week I was fortunate to travel up to New York with the Mid-Atlantic Trail Crew to work on the Bear Mountain Relocation project and thought I’d share a couple pictures from my trip. As you will notice, this project is very different from what you’ll see on Konnarock for several reasons. If you’d like to read more about the project, check out this article from a past ATJ article here.

2008 Crew T-Shirt

There's no doubt folks Volunteer on crew for more than an ole' cotton t-shirt. However, it's nice to have something to show after the end of a long week's work. And, what is more, there is a long great history of amazing and unique designs throughout the years worn proudly by Volunteers.

Anyone interested in submitting a design(s) for the 2008 trail crew t-shirt? If so, please shoot me an email (kwood@appalachiantrail.org) or give us a call at the office (540.953.3571). If possible, please have design ideas (can be rough) submitted by December 1st and we'll go from there.
