Uroutes Hitch 4 – Crew 1


Leader: Ambereen

Members: Dain, Trever, and Katie

Hitch 4 was just a week, a five day endeavor rather than the usual eight because our break is coming up. Our crew was stationed at the Timber Creek Campground, on the eastern side of the Salmon-Challis Forest. Our U-routes were quite diverse, varying from heavily overgrown with conifers to being out in sage-brush land, completely exposed. The routes were also rather spread out, resulting in a rather equal ratio of driving to hiking. We saw a couple moose, a spotted owl, and lots of raptors. The rigs experienced some great 4×4 terrain, which was fun for everyone. We also shared the campground with a family reunion. It was fun to talk about our work with people who were interested, and make friends with their adorable dog. In the end we got about 50 Uroutes done, consisting of about 23 miles of ground covered. Overall, a very successful hitch.  We’re all feeling good about the work we got done
