Today was my first day on the “job” and I spent the morning surveying the trails of Buckskin Mountain State Park. Buster got to go with me. He was curious about the old mines and not sure why dad was more interested in the trail. In my defense, it was important to me to check to see how my work in previous years was holding up. All in all I was pretty pleased with what I found. The changes and improvements that I had made have held up well in our absence of 20 months. I’ll be spending some days working on the trail, some days leading hikes on the trail, and some days leading bird walks in the campground along the river.
