Trail work in George Washington and Jefferson National Forests - day 1

Today we spent a couple hours on a fire fighter bus commuting to and from our assigned site in the National Forest. The 8 squad members on my team and 7 from the other squad in my crew worked at a trailhead grading and widening the tread, and getting rock walls set up on the downhill side.

The photo shows half my squad migrating a double hernia sized rock down the slope (always easier than going up). I have a 10 second video clip of our crew leader moving a rock but cannot get it online until later.

Crackerbarrel just started so it's time to get back in line for more food!
