It was a real treat to read this touching story. I too have known some really wonderful trail people in the last 30+ years in the trails business.
Your post brought back a thought that we Trailwrights once talked about doing which was to build a memorial cairn in honor of those maintainers who have gone before us, a stone for each one. we couldn't come up with a place to build it so we kind of put it on the back burner. Maybe it is time to bring it back and do it. Anyway thank you for the nice story.
Any thoughts anyone?
I must say that sounds like an incredible idea. It would be quite an enduring testimony. I just shudder at what it could possibly involve to accomplish it, red tape, etc, etc. Obviously there are many places such a memorial would not be legal. Maybe something could be dedicated that already exists. When you mention a "place" what kind of ideas had you come up with, I mean as opposed to a specific spot.
