Week 1: A Super Supercrew!

One sure sign of spring: the trail tools come out of hibernation!
Crews 1 and 2 joined forces this week to form an unstoppable Supercrew! The Supercrew worked with PATH (Piedmont Appalachian Trail Hikers) on a trail relocation project near Atkins, VA with the colorful name Desert Dog.

Week 1 brought out many experienced Konnarock alumni as well as some new faces. PATH President Jim Houck served his first full week as a Konnarock Crew member, provided dinner for the Crew one night, and even led a hike to the Davis Path shelter site!

Thanks for the great meal, PATH!
Digging fearlessly through steep terrain and stubborn stumps, the Supercrew kept up a great sense of humor and camaraderie all week. Even with a day cut short by rain, they built 850 feet of beautiful new sidehill trail. What a great way to kick off the 2013 Konnarock season!

Introducing Crumbsnatcher the AT Shelter Mouse! With a new set of trail tools that are just her size, she'll be volunteering with the Konnarock Crew all season.
