Week 6: June 6-10, 2013
Supercrew at Mount Rogers!
|Jumping for joy in the highlands!|
|Crew 1 moving a BIG rock!|
The trail was badly eroded, so Crew 1 built a massive crib wall and a side drain to improve the drainage. They also built several steps and waterbars, working together to move BIG rocks and crush smaller rocks into gravel.
|Crumbsnatcher inspected the inside of the crib wall for stability.|
|Before: erosion and exposed roots. :-(|
|After: 13 beautiful steps! :-)|
|Backpacking into the camp site.|
|Crew 2's favorite lunch spot.|
The Supercrew really appreciated all the help from MRATC and the Forest Service that made this unique project possible. Thanks!!
