This is another cooperative effort. The Pacific Crest Trail Association has volunteers who don't have horses who are willing to spend a week improving the trail. We help them by packing their tools and supplies in and out. It's a win-win-win-win situation; the PCTA folks get better supplies and better tools than they would if they backpacked in, we get a sense of satisfaction and a really good excuse to spend the weekend riding through some spectacular mountains, the USFS, chronically underfunded, gets the benefit of volunteer labor, and everyone who rides or hikes the PCT gets a better trail.
These are from the Pennsylvania Creek trail project on August 20, 2011. We had packed them in the week before with Carl and Julie Perry, Gary and Michele Cain, and Dennis and Loretta Serpa. We had 10 pack loads coming out, with Anthony Alamo, Lloyd Erlandson, Dave Harrison, Dave Moser, Van Pender, and Dennis Serpa all lending a hand - and a horse or mule.
