    Chapeau!

    Do you know yet what your next goals are?

    Whether in the woods, on the water, or in a treeless landscape, a day immersed in nature is food for the soul.

    I am a big fan of getting kids out in the woods at a young age, but I question how healthy it is for kids so young to be pushed in to this kind of feat. I also question the point. She will have vivid...

    Thanks for sharing this, Spencer. I thought that the end was a tad abrupt, but otherwise, it was well done.

    DayTrip, please do write to the Park detailing your complaints. I understand that they might be short-staffed, but unsanitary restrooms and widespread bear-prevention violations are not acceptable.
