    Week 2 on the Yellow Trail

    Blog

    July 24, 2020 | "Our bridge is a mark of success, not just by my Women’s Youth Crew, but by the previous adult crew that had worked on it the year before.

    12 Tons, bay-beee!!!

    March 17, 2020 | The first time I walked down the Natchez Trace, I was enchanted by the towering pine forests and palmetto sprinkled swampland. It almost seemed like two lost worlds colliding - vast, Jurassic forests that I could imagine dinosaurs roaming juxtaposed with swamps that somehow felt even more prehistoric. Even as we walked down the trail clearing corridor and access points, everything seemed somehow unchanged, eternal.
