850’ New Tread
This week we had our first full hitch working on the McGraw’s shortcut near Clifton Forge, VA It was nice to change campsites and get a new view. The fall colors are changing everyday and the crisp mornings put an extra bounce in each of our steps across the crunchy leaves on our way to work. We worked mainly on restoring tread and cutting in new tread this hitch. We efficiently completed 825’ of retread and 850’ of new tread, a very productive hitch for us.
In other excitement, we had a visitor this week. My friend from Montana came to check out what trail crew is all about. Our first outsider to stay for an entire hitch, it was fun to remember what all this felt like when it was new. I watched everyone teach Earl something about working on trail and living in the woods and felt proud we’ve now learned enough to teach. Thanks Earl!
We look forward to one more hitch on McGraw Loop to wrap up our season.
