Happy National Trails Day!

Each year on the first Saturday in June it is National Trails Day.

Events held throughout the United States help promote awareness of the wide variety of benefits that trails provide, encourage people to discover their local trials, raise awareness of trail issues and instill excitement for the outdoors.

Trails are for more than just hiking. Trails provide access to waterways for canoeing and paddle trips. Birdwatching and geocaching are some other favorite activities. Learning land navigation or biking are also great trail pursuits.

National Trails Day is also an opportunity to thank the many volunteers, land agencies, trail developers, park employees, rangers for their help in developing and maintaining the trails.

Reaching the Summit of Mount Whitney! 05-28-2018

One of the reasons I keep going back and taking people up is to see and feel their expressions when they reach the summit… Some, tears of joy or pain, others in shock and amazement, and my own is the belief that if you can get through this, you can get through anything in Life. Congratulations @angee717 @5150crissy and @colindres_edgar .

Water crossings at night – 05-28-2018

Not too many people shoot video or pictures of Mount Whitney at night as of course it is dark and not much to see in the dark. But you may not know, you do have to cross some water ways along the trail. Here is just one of those for you to enjoy!
