Frank happy to be painting blazes on the newly opened Unaka Mtn Relocation (Frank has the most weeks on this project-10).

If you're at Unaka Mtn, you have to hit the falls.

Longhorn smiles for the camera on the Pine Swamp Relocation.

Even the local fauna came out for the Pine Swamp Relocation opening.

How beautiful is that?

It's really nice to finish a relocation or two from time to time and Week #11 saw both crews puttin the finishing touches on a long-term project and on not-so-long-term project. Anyway, Crew #1 finished the Pine Swamp Relocation (a two week project started this year) and Crew #2 finished the Unaka Mountain Relocation (a 10 week project started in 2006). No matter what the size, a relocation is a relocation (even though the big ones are really, really nice to finish) which means lots of work and in the end more great trail to hike courtesy of the Konnarock Crew!

We're off for a few days then we'll be hitting the Trail for our last week of the season (wow!). Next Monday as usual we'll have dinner for the returning Volunteers of the week but anyone is welcome and encouraged to come say goodbye to another successful season. If you'd like to come please let us know by calling camp ((276) 677-4055)).

What do the different color markings on each tree mean?

i just recently finished a great documentary about the Appalachian Trail by NatGeo and I hope to someday hike to at least a portion of the trail. It was so inspiring and kudos to those who've completed the whole thing.
