Morphy Lake 2018

The NMVFO camped at Morphy Lake State Park, near Mora, NM, on September 7-9, 2018, and built new trail.

The park is currently closed for construction, with the exception of our trail crew.

(This was Jenny’s first project as solo leader. Good job, of course.)

So Young and “Not So Young” brought companions.

Chris is known for his rock-work projects, and I joined his team on Saturday because I had not done major rock construction before.

On Sunday we moved a vast quantity of dirt to the new trail, to bring it up to grade.

Kevin produced this video of the weekend…
