Jeanette took this photo of me on the trail early this morning. I’m back to working on the trails here at Buckskin Mountain State Park. I’ve now spent four days working on them, and finding it very enjoyable and fulfilling. It’s great to see that the work I did last year for erosion control held up and functioned. I need a couple of more days yet to finish cleaning out the water-bars, ditches and culverts and then they will be in tiptop shape again.
Yesterday we got our schedules for next month. I’m quite pleased to be leading bird walks two days a week this year, Mondays and Thursdays. Fridays I will lead a nature hike, and Tuesdays and Wednesdays I will work in the Information Center. Jeanette is currently working on a special Ranger assigned project to clean and organize the shop. Then on January she will start her regular schedule of working in the Registration Office and the Gift Shop. Saturdays and Sundays will be our days off.
