Apache Kid Wilderness 1 2021

NMVFO volunteers met Friday evening for a car-camping project based at Springtime Campground near the Apache Kid Wilderness in the San Mateo Mountains (not the other San Mateo Mountains in New Mexico), Cibola National Forest near Monticello. We worked Saturday and Sunday on Apache Kid Trail #43 and Shipman Trail #50, clearing deadfalls and lopping, with some tread work.

Christina and Nick excelled as crew cooks.

The trails were often faint and overgrown, with several recent burns, and need a lot of loving care. We made a good start.

Many thanks to Anna and Julia for their first co-leader project, and Nick, Christina, Don, Dave, Jim N, Patrick, Lynne, Sharon, Catlin, and Dominic.
