Week Six, Intermission....

It's hard to believe we're midway through the season here at Konnarock. As it says above, time for intermission but first, a recap of week #6….

Ted, Brian, and Crew #1 headed out Thursday to pickup where the crew left off last year at the Lynn Camp relocation. As always, working with the Piedmont Appalachian Trail Hikers (PATH) has its luxuries; this time was no different as the crew was treated to a home-cooked breakfast each morning and dinner every night. Sidehilling was the name of the game on this project with the crew nearing completion on the first week (we still have one more to go).

Meanwhile, Christine, Kelly, and Crew #2 headed down to continue work on Unaka Mtn with the Tennessee Eastman Hiking Club. And as in previous weeks, the crew was treated to an amazing waterfall to cool off in at the end of the day.

For now, the crew will take a much needed two week break and be back in July to tackle another 6 weeks.

  1. Great article and pictures on the worktrip in Poor Valley this weekend. It was a great weekend with 20 PATH members and a crew of 12 headed up by Ted Wilson. We made a new relo of 1047 feet and added 565 feet to the AT.--John boy Hartpence -Secretary PATH
