Crew restored a campsite out of control today. Whole trees had been laid across the fire ring. A site similar to this started the 2013 Table Rock Fire, when an abandoned campfire climbed over the stones and along an oversized log.
Members of Wild South, US Forest Service Grandfather District, and North Carolina Outward Bound School lined a section of the Mountains-to-Sea Trail with stones today to keep hikers from damaging fragile trailside habitat. (Photos: Lisa Jennings)
