Slowly but Surely....

Slowly but surely we’re getting ready for the season, I’ll have more to report after the meeting of the Konnarock Steering Committee this weekend at Mountain Lake, VA. For now, enjoy some pictures of my recent scouting trip to Main Top Mountain for a relocation project starting next year. The crew will be camping and working near Spy Rock, a large granite dome with 360˚ views.



The relocation (in pink) will move the Trail off the Main Top Mtn Summit onto the side (there are no views from the summit but the side has many nice views eastward)

Trails in Other Places...

A "trail" (really a dry wash) in a narrow canyon south of the Hoover Dam on the way some nice hot springs.

It's nice to have views like these from any trail.

An evening sky while hiking along the "Boy Scout Trail" in Joshua Tree NP.

Vertical "Trail"....

No too much (if any) in the way of real Konnarock-related pictures here but thought I would share a few pictures of my recent trip to Joshua Tree National Park. It's always nice to see trails in other places as they are a good way to learn new ideas for trail design, etc. Of course with Joshua Tree only receiving 4" of rain a year, it's a bit different then what we deal with on the AT!

More Konnarock updates soon to come!
