Project Leader: Sterling B Collins-Hill Project Dates: July - December 2010 Email Address: email@example.com
After our retreat from the snowy Skodies we went south for Lake Arrowhead and a place where the PCT crosses lower altitudes and is thus, less snowy. We stayed in a nice little Forest Service cabin and had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We ate well and had a few days off to explore and hang out. We got to use some Griphoists and set some rocks on a massive wall project that we which set the foundation. We got to work with a great PCTA representative who happened to lead SCA crews a few years ago. It was a fantastic glimpse into what may lay ahead in the world of trails should any of our group pursue furthering their trailwork experience. We got to explore a new section of Deep Creek and understand what it is to tackle the unsolvable problem: erosion and use lead to trail disappearing. It was fun to work in a new capacity. Other than carrying the gear in, rigging is largely a puzzle. Moving rocks that weigh 600 pounds and placing them in spots it was difficult to climb to, with a minimal effort other than the pulling of a lever is a great cognitive exercise. We had a lot of fun and felt it an appropriate final hitch.
