Road Trippin'

Recently, I traveled to the great state of New Mexico to walk the streets of Santa Fe. After getting my fill of art galleries, eateries, and shopping I decided to take a hike on the nearby trails to stretch my legs and have the opportunity to look out over the city. It was a beautiful hike along the Dorothy Stewart trail. While hiking, the beauty of the desert and all of its wonders came back to me. I was reminded of how important it is to stick to trails not only in the backcountry, but in the frontcountry as well.  Walking, running, or biking on designated trails protects trailside plants, flowers, and trees. This simple principle preserves the future of these trail systems for many generations to come.
