For the past week I’ve been out in Iceland helping with some trail work. Not quite the Arctic but it was pretty damn chilly…. Good times all round and I even found time for a bit of sledging 🙂
Our search for trails free from snow lead this season’s first volunteer team to Hjálpafoss in Þjorsadalur, where we have been working on Forest Service (Skógrækt ríkisins) trail projects in recent days. Our work included landscaping around the newly built trails at Hjálpafoss and general maintenance tasks there. This project was the first time that our teams have worked away from our home area around Þórsmörk, Goðaland and the Laugavegur, since our programme began three years ago.
We would like to thank the team for joining us, for braving the cold conditions, for their hard work… and for digging the car out of the snow so many times!
Now we are warmed up and ready for the summer!
