CCC crew builds the road into Frijoles Canyon
One of the first tasks of CCC workers at Bandelier was to build a road into Frijoles Canyon.  This is the same route the park entrance road follows today.  Prior to arrival of the CCC workers all entry to the canyon was via a steep trail now known as the Frey Trail.
