I was the epitome of unprepared, mentally and physically, for the job of Youth Crew Leader for Montana Conservation Corps.

What happens when you combine a day long downpour with constant mosquito attacks and a seemingly endless amount of crushing? One of the most satisfying building projects one can be a part of.

Our crew was sad to see each other leave; we made a family. It was great to see our family and will never forget the time spent this summer with Montana Conservation Corps!

A Hitch to Remember

On the plane to Montana, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. I loved the outdoors and didn’t want to work inside another summer; but I also wasn’t the most avid hiker or the most outdoorsy person. I never tent camped before in my life, I had never held a tool in my life (does a butter knife or fork count?).


It Didn’t Seem That Important

When we showed up for our first day of work at Dad Peak (take a right turn after the middle of nowhere, you’ll find it), we were greeted by two people: a ranger from the Cabinet Mountain Ranger District, and Bob Cheshire, private citizen. Bob, a dapper and cheerful man in his 70s, was the real reason we’d hike an average of five miles a day up fire-line-steep grade for two weeks. We were about to brush and clear his very favorite trail - the Devil’s Club Trail - which he himself had worked on building in the 1970s…

As we enjoyed the beautiful views on the top of Mount Martson and worked our hardest on repairing the burnt over trail we had some visitors along the way.


Each member gained a little more insight on what it means to truly be a steward of the land.
