Moore's Springs Campground Clean-Up #1

Great turnout for the clean-up yesterday.  Good times with good folks.  Thanks to all that made it out and to those who didn't, we'll see you next time.
Gabe made a wonderful welcoming party as work on the bridge got underway.

Thanks to support by the Dan River Basin Association we were able to purchase rip-rap for the old bridge crossing that was washed out in a flood a few years back.

John, Barry and Billy wait for another bucket load of gravel, while Seven makes like a dog.

Meanwhile, Bev, Jen and I got to work clearing and uncovering the (enormous) concrete slab by Cascade Creek.  We had no idea how big this thing was, as it had been covered by decades of sand and leaves.  We soon realized we were going to need more than rakes.

Tim and Debbie came to our rescue with the tractor after the bridge work was done.

Once the slab was cleared, we began to collect the old picnic tables.

Out by the gate, Michael, Petr and John moved on to weed-eater duty.  This was tough work but made a tremendous difference to the view from the road.

While all of the above was going on, Randy plugged away on the bush hog, mowing the big pasture.  By the time this photo was taken he had succumbed to a tractor induced stupor.

By the end of the day, we had mowed grass, moved gravel, cleaned slabs and hauled away trash!  All in all a near complete victory over the forces of entropy.  I'm looking forward to the next one.
