Crushing it in Yellowstone

During the middle of May the our crew of Youth Crew Leaders from the Greater Yellowstone region spent an interesting week at Mammoth Hot Springs in Yellowstone National Park. Our objective was to widen the shoulder of a path that goes along the hot springs and to build a jack link fence to block a social trail. The shoulder was made of crushed travertine and a clay sediment. Our crew spent the first two days building a wall to back up a drain for the shoulder and crushing the travertine. Then on the third day the temperature dropped to about thirty degrees and snowed all day. Our crew spent the morning in one the National Park Service’s wood shops. The snow let up on the fourth day and work presumed on the fence and rock work. Our crew finished all of the assigned projects on time and the partners were pleased with our work. Also, we were pleased that many of the tourists thanked us for our service. It was a nice reminder of the rewards that come out of working for on MCC crew.
