Sierra Club Home PageDixie Archaeology 2001 Service Trip

This year's trip included the standard two Dixie components: trail work and archaeology work. This year we got four jobs for the price of two. We got to: 1. Do trail maintenance, 2. Build a fence, 3. Do a site survey (in front of a thunderhead!), and 4. Assist in the first CCC camp archaeological dig ever!

(This was AFTER the work wasn't it?)

Half of our little group built this nice fence between the Forest and a private "inholding". The weather was great at this altitude. Dixie 2001 Picture

There is nothing like a wonderful campfire in the mountains!
Today the entire group assisted in an archaeological survey of a large parcel of public land prior to a prescribed burn. The burn can actually damage artifacts on the surface and our job was to determine if any existed.

During our task, major thunderheads swept down the valley and we escaped just as huge amounts of rain hit.

We even stuck poor Jean in the wayback!

She looks happy, but is that only because the window is finally open?
