The Teen Trail Crew Experience in 9 Photos

July 10, 2017

What better way to get a feel for what it’s like to be part of an AMC Teen Trail Crew than through the eyes of a participant? Recent White Mountain Two-Week Spike Crew volunteer Tim Berger shared this collection of photos with us, and not only are they excellent, we think they speak volumes about the Teen Trail Crew experience.

Tim explains, “I first joined an AMC crew last year in NY to do community service and learn more about the environment, and came back this year hoping to have another great experience in NH. During the two week spike I enjoyed photographing the beautiful White Mountains and our crew’s hard work on the A.T , in addition to bonding with the crew and learning about things, such as L.N.T, from the leaders.”

Tim, thanks for sharing your passion for photography and trail stewardship!
