|SWEAT Crew Session 2|
|Up On Rocky Top|
Day 2: We began our first workday by picking up tools located at two different shelters on our way to Rocky Top. By the time we reached the summit, everyone was ready to break and enjoy the magnificent panorama. Meanwhile, Andy took the opportunity to visit Thunderhead - what can we say, the girl's got some energy! From there we worked on clearing brush from the northern portion of our work section.

Day 5: Our work week drawing to an end, the crew set out with the drive to finish the remaining 1.5 miles of trail. With an ample supply of gusto, good humor, and a few sore arms, the crew raced to the finish in time to return tools to Spence and survey the several days of hard work. Needless to say, we returned to camp satisfied with our labors.
Day 6: We packed out after packing up camp and enjoyed ice cream down at Cades Cove. The drive back to camp put us at Soak Ash just in time for a delicious cookout courtesy of our chef extraordinaire, Meg. Hot dogs, hamburgers, grilled pineapple, watermelon, baked beans…. the list of amazing food seemed never to end. A great end to a fantastic week!
