This week was pretty eventful here in the Tye River area despite hiking on very well-maintained sections of the trail. (Way to go NBATC!) Hikers are loving the 100 anniversary hangtags. Special shout out to Brian, Kurt and Aaron for responding to reports of a mentally unwell woman at punchbowl shelter. We are hoping she decided to get off trail at some point and Brian spoke to her yesterday. She is still on trail as far as we know but has not threatened anyone or herself. She is allegedly leaving a lot of graffiti and hanging paper notes. I will do my best to keep on top of this and continue removing graffiti where it is reported, or I find it. I hope you all had a great week and look forward to the tidewater meeting this week.
