Orange crew’s first 2 weeks were spent in the awe-inspiring Yellowstone National Park. We worked with the North Entrance maintenance department building jack leg fence, painting guard rails, and constructing bumper logs for parking areas. In between these projects we spent time cleaning out fire rings and replacing old ones as well as remarking campsites. It was a very rewarding hitch.
The next project was at Lewis and Clark Caverns State Park, where orange crew spent the week doing trail maintenance on the hiking paths. We completed a total of 3.5 miles of trail work including drain installation, retread and brush clearing. This was hot, hard work but they powered through it!
Orange crew’s final week was spent in the Gallatin National Forest working on the Cinnamon Creek trail. A majority of this time was spent clearing loose rock from the trail, and installing drains. But the highlight of this project had to have been smashing boulders in order to make the trail safer for equestrian users as well as motorbikes. The project was exhausting but it was an excellent way to push through our final work week.
