The crew worked hard on the trails this week. Highlights of the week included a day with the Jenny Lake Rangers. The rangers hosted the YCP for a series of training stations and a delicious lunch. The crew was able to see what the ranger life was all about and was even able to watch then train with the helicopter.

At the end of the week, the members were lucky enough to attend an open house to the Grad Teton Archives. Here, they gained a window into time looking at historic maps, photos, movies and summit logs learning the importance of history.
