Back in February we joined a Ventana Wilderness Alliance trail crew to work on the Little Sur Trail along the South Fork Little Sur. Today, in honor of National Public Lands Day, we returned with the VWA to work the other end of the Little Sur Trail, on the climb from the North Fork Little Sur to Launtz Ridge. Those with unnaturally good memories may recall that we posted some photos from a walk along this badly deteriorated trail back in November, 2010.

Facing a mess like this with nothing but hand tools can be a little intimidating …
… but it’s amazing what a good crew can accomplish.
