2nd bridge in Bighorn National Forest

just boys being ‘toids

Our crew of Reptoids travelled to the Gallatin National Forest, just outside of West Yellowstone to do drain work on the CDT. We also constructed a turnpike there. Next, our crew worked for the BLM in southwest Montana and brushed out a trail and cleared large rocks from the trail. Finally, we did 2 hitches in the Bighorn National Forest in Wyoming. There, we constructed 3 bridges, brushed four miles of trail, cleared a log jam, and installed 17 drains on a social trail often utilized by horse packers.

This hitch was the second consecutive adventure into the Lolo South Fork Trail. While the previous hitch focused on bridge-building, this hitch hinged on cross-cutting some formidable fallen trees.


Wilderness!

Our Very First Wilderness Experience

It was our first hitch in which we were able to go into the Wilderness (with a capital W). It was also the hitch where we saw the most people and mules by far. It may have not felt like a typical ‘wilderness’ experience (no crosscutting sadly) but it was a great time overall and dare we say, one of those ‘best hitches ever?’

After two long days of travel, we step off the boats onto the bank of the Chandalar River. The muddy bank is decorated by arctic wolf and black bear tracks, a reminder that although we will call this spot home for 14 days, we are guests in the territory of much wilder things.

Following a month long hitch many of the crew members had already completed time as members on previous expeditions with MCC. Through more experience with MCC than their Co-Leaders, these youth came up with some MCC PRO-TIPS after their time spent traveling from Wild Horse Island, out to Glacier National Park, into the Kootenai, and along the Hungry Horse.

Six Ways to Die on the National Bison Range

What could possibly go wrong when you ask a group of high school aged volunteers to work outside in 90 degree weather on the National Bison Range? Apparently, a lot. We managed to make it out unscathed, but made a list of six ways things could have gone wrong while working on the range:
