Yellowstone NP Trails WY Teal Crew

Yellowstone National Park is America's first national park that turned 150 years old in 2022. Pebble Creek is in the Northeast Corner of the park and is a 12-mile trail that starts with an uphill climb and then gently starts to decrease in elevation leading to rolling meadows. Bison, Pronghorns, and many other animals were seen roaming around the park. Teal Crew worked on erosion control on four different trails in Yellowstone starting with Lamar Creek Trail, then to Trout Lake to clear out drains, Pebble Creek trail to install check steps, and water bars and clear out drains, and ending at Slough Creek to clear out drains on a wagon trail. The project partners were the most amazing humans, were so helpful with the learning curve, and were eager to hear our opinions before doing anything.
