This is what happens when you give Volunteers some free time...
Enjoying the whole dam view....(I couldn't resist).
With a well rested staff, crews headed out for the second half of our 26th season.
Christine, Dannon and a crew of eight started their first week of the S. Yellow Creek Gap Rehabilitation just south of the Fontana Dam (largest dam east of the Mississippi River) in
Meanwhile, Ted, Adam and a crew of eight headed north to restart work (this project was last worked on in 2005) on the Tye River Relocation. Volunteers worked hard building new trail along with the Tidewater Appalachian Trail Club and then headed back to their “luxurious” accommodations at Sherando Lake where they enjoyed bluegrass music and a showing of “Alvin & the Chipmunks” as part of July 4th festivities.
This week, Christine heads back to S. Yellow Creek Gap and Ted heads back to Roan Mtn!
