On their third hitch, and back to the 5-day hitches that now seem like nothing, the SCA Adirondack corps members are really getting into the swing of things...
1. Santanoni Historic Area
The crew at Santanoni had the big job of dragging a downed steel suspension bridge out of a river at the base of Mt. Adams in Tahawus. The project required a lot of hands and fairly extensive use of the Griphoist rigging system to get the tangled mess of a bridge out of the water and back in the air. The crew also had some time to pull some invasive Japanese Knotweed from a nearby site and canoe a few loads of lumber across a lake to a future bridge construction site.
2. Wilmington Wild Forest
The Wilmington continued the work on brushing the area's trails. They cleared brush from over 1.5 miles of trail, extending the corridor to project specifications, as well as felling and bucking eight trees.
3. Pharaoh Lake Wilderness
Working on a reroute trail in the wilderness area, the crew brushed about a half mile of trail, and then followed through and cut tread through the same area. The old trail was naturalized to prevent additionaly use. Additionally, they hung two signs and almost 150 trail markers.
4. Lake George Wild Forest
The crew was working in the Shelving Rock Area on the eastern shore of Lake George. They cleared approximately 9 miles of trail, focusing on blowdown removal with chainsaws.
