Campsite Survey

I volunteer to go out with Forest Service coordinator Craig Saum to survey some campsites along a forest road in the Jemez range. We head out with a $13,000 Trimble asset surveyor and drive deep into the Jemez backcountry. This area is used so lightly, all but one of the campsites we find look like they haven’t been used in a year. There are mushrooms and wildflowers to enjoy, and on our way back a family of wild turkeys scamper across the road. We check out our data when we return, and it looks good. If all goes well this will be the basis for designated camping corridors under the new travel management rule. Cool!
