Maine Woods Teen Trail Crew - Week #4

The last teen volunteer crew of the summer in Maine dove into trail work with high energy, putting the finishing touches on the Lodge to Lodge ski bridge near Gorman-Chairback, installing a trail-hardening set of log crib stairs on the Henderson Brook trail, brushing out ski trails for the winter season, and continuing Appalachian Trail corridor boundary maintenance.

While everyone missed one of our crew members who left early in the session due to an ankle injury, the crew enjoyed challenging days on the trail and the relaxed life at base camp. Birthday celebrations marked the first and last days in Maine, complete with candles to blow out on a layer cake and then experimental chocolate-bacon breakfast muffins, baked on site!

Highlights included spectacular sunsets on the floating dock, owls swooping though camp, and hanging out around the campfire at night.

Thanks to a hardworking crew for finishing out the season on Long Pond!!
