Grayson Highlands Supercrew!
|Ready to hike in the first day!|
The Konnarock Crew kicked off its 2014 season in one of the most beloved areas of the southern A.T.: the Grayson Highlands!
This area is famous for open balds, sweeping views, the highest peak in Virginia, and herds of feral ponies.

Special thanks to Grayson Highlands State Park for providing space in their campground for the Supercrew! The crew enjoyed luxuries like toilets that aren't available every week.
|Ponies wandering through the work site. One has a white blaze on its side!|

At the end of the week, MRATC provided a great potluck for the Crew to show their appreciation for the help on the section they maintain. Many thanks to all the volunteers, staff, and agency partners who helped make the first week of the 2014 Konnarock season such a success!
