Week 1

And we're off!! Crew season 2011 has officially begun! Our first two Konnarock crews put in a lot of hard work and had a lot of fun! Week 1 was based out of our volunteer basecamp in Sugar Grove, Virginia. Both crews headed out each day to work on the Mount Rogers A.T. Club section of Trail near White Top Mountain. The crews installed 20 rock steps, several waterbars and some rock cribbing. They also made crush and fill ans used stepping stones to help harden wet sections of Trail. The crew had a short break from trail work to visit Trail Days in Damascus. They stood with their banner at the Damascus A.T. Community designation ceremony to show their support for the town and even marched in the hiker parade, hard hats and all! Check out some photos from the great week that kicked off the season....
