Teamwork Makes the Dream Work

The trail we were tasked to work on was located up near Tally Lake. The Forest Service crew that we were working with and our team were tasked with renovating a creek crossing. Being a fall crew, everything we do is still new. It brings a lot of excitement and invigorated spirits into the projects that we do. The new stuff we got to help with was the construction of a couple turnpikes, the creation of a bridge, a few stone steps, and a rock patio. The thing that we all seemed to struggle with was the large amount of large rocks that we had to haul.

I believe that one of the coolest things that we got to do on this project was move a massive stringer for the bridge. It took eleven of us to move it the (maybe) 100 yards that it needed to go. Watching the teamwork that was involved while moving this massive log was awe-inspiring. There was teamwork between the pairs on each set of log tongs, teamwork between the guy leading our lifting and the guy moving the rollers, and teamwork between the group as a whole. Then when I got to see the final product of the bridge a day later, I had this realization how successful teamwork can be a true catalyst for progress.

On a little different topic, I’d like to say congratulations to all of the MCC individuals who have been sent on disaster relief. Including two from my crew. I wish them the best of luck in their travels and endeavors.
