The crew spent the majority of their final hitch building Rock Cairns. What are Cairns? you may ask, well at their very least they are piles of rocks. At their very best, they successfully guide hikers and hunters through areas where the trail could easily be lost.
Our hitch was split into two different parts; the first half spent camped at the trailhead and the other packed 3.5 miles in. While we were at the truck, trailer and trailhead, the crew was able to get over to Olive Lake Campground and visit Umatilla 1 for some dinners and swimming. It was real nice to have another crew so close by. When we packed ourselves in, we camped at the junction on the South Fork Desolation trail. From there we worked tread about a mile down into an 800 ft valley meadow. After some final crosscut and log out, Umatilla Crew 2 was packing out and ready to move on.
Hats off to Mary G, Katrina, Chip and Dan for their hard work, and the successful and fun season!
