Happy Earth Day!

Well, hi there, trail heads.

I’m up to my ears in this and that and everything else, but I’m just popping in to post a super-quick message to wish everyone a happy Earth Day. I hope that, either today or later on in the week (or any day for that matter), you get a chance to spend some time outdoors, whether it’s just in the backyard or out in a state or national park – or any place else you can get out among nature.

We talk a lot about our resources: water, clean air, energy. And our parks, green spaces and other walkable (and hikeable, climbable and campable) places are an especially precious resource. If we didn’t have those places, we’d be a lot poorer and a lot more miserable as a species. So that’s something to think about, both on Earth Day and on every other day of the year.

I’ve got a few postings lined up, including a rail trail hike I just did a few weekends ago out in western New Jersey. Stay tuned!

(And don’t forget the Leave No Trace rules: Take nothing but photos, leave nothing but footprints and kill nothing but time.)
