Yesterday NOLS Rocky Mountain was busy with some unusual business. In addition to the usual debriefing and de-issuing of semester courses that goes on around this time of year, the troops were rallied for a construction project.

Josh and Andy are pros by now.

Thanks to everyone who came out to help! For more photos from the project, click here.
