Trail Work Day: Turk Gap to Crimora Lake Overlook - December 2, 2017

 Thanks for the seven hard working volunteers that showed up for the December 2nd trail maintenance project at Turk Gap.  Co-overseers, Jeff Monroe and Marit Anderson, with assistance from Mark Perschel, designed the work day to create water bars on the Appalachian Trail from Turk Gap to Crimora Lake Overlook.  Unfortunately Marit had a family member needing emergency surgery, so Jeff and Mark demonstrated the process and coordinated the team. Twenty four berm water bars were formed in two hours of intense digging!  Much gratitude to Hunter and Meghan Cloud, Dave Borszich, Christa Neher, and Nancy Handley for their time and effort. At noon cookies were handed out and the group dispersed, except Mark, Dave, Nancy, and Christa hiked up to the top of Turk Summit to enjoy the sunshine and view. Nice day in the Shenandoah National Park.
