Montpelier work hike

Our annual work day in the Montpelier parks, co-led with Parks Director Geoffrey Beyer, took place on a beautiful May day. Not even an occasional black fly could spoil it. With eight GMCers and four parks people, we had a good-sized crew. We spent most of our time improving a wet section of trail near the North Branch River: digging drainage ditches, installing a culvert, and dumping and smoothing countless wheelbarrow loads of dirt. Everyone worked hard. Prize for the best-looking tools goes to 22-month old Linnaea whose rake and shovel, yellow and purple, were the envy of the other girls. Thanks for helping us, Linnaea!

Gravel/sand was brought up a hill to provide a better draining top layer. Original image
