#snmta and Silver City #backcountryhorsemen volunteers loppped, cleared blowdowns, blazed the #continentaldivedetrail , backpacked, and camped this week. All while maintaining a 13 mile section of the trail we adopted in the #gilawilderness . Who wants to join us next time? We're thinking of picking up some more miles in the Also Leopold wilderness!

After 1500+ miles hiked thru 7 states in a little over 4 months, I’m officially out of the South... I’ve loved (almost) every minute I spent here but glad to hit this significant milestone.

Happy #TrailTuesday from one of the prettiest trails I’ve hiked, the Continental Divide National Scenic Trail in the Gila National Forest in New Mexico. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the National Trails System Act, celebrating and protecting awesome trails like this... a gift.
Despite taking considerably longer than planned, I finally made it to the #ATC in #HarpersFerry #WestVirginia from #Flagg Mountain, #Alabama in four months and one day, entirely on foot. It’s been an awesome journey so far, can’t wait to see what lies on the trail ahead! #truetothethru #yesinadress #PLP2018 #AL2ME #Trails50 #NST50 #FindYourTrail #TeamULA #thruhiking #appalachiantrail #hikertrash por vida 💖 supportpubliclands.com

What would it take for to pick up and move your family to a new place? Between 1836 and 1868, nearly half a million people packed up everything they could in a wagon and emigrated from one side of the continent to the other. It remains one of largest mass migrations in history. Can you see the indentations on the landscape from thousands of heavily-laden wagons, and millions of human feet and animal hoof prints that we saw today at Ash Hollow State Historic Park in western Nebraska? #OregonTrail #California Trail #findyourpark #findyourtrail #trails50 #asc2018 @negameandparks
We had an awesome day at the opening event of the #AmericanSolarChallenge in Omaha. People had the chance to visit with the 20 universities from around the world that will compete in this 1700 mile, four state journey on the #OregonTrail . Saturday morning, the real race begins at Lewis And Clark Landing in Omaha. The starting flag drops at 8 am, then we’re all headed west with a checkpoint scheduled at the Stuhr Museum of the Prairie Pioneer in Grand Island, NE. We’ll be in Grand Island from 11 am - 5 pm. Stop by to check out the solar cars, get your National Park Passport stamped, earn your Junior Ranger sticker, and play our Oregon Trail game. @midwestnationalparks @lewisandclarknht Clark #Findyourpark #FindYourTrail #Trails50

In downtown Omaha, Nebraska, you’ll find these monuments to the emigrants who crossed the continent on the Oregon, California and Mormon Pioneer Trails in the mid-1800s. These statues in Pioneer Courage Park feature four emigrant families heading west from Omaha. Each wagon stands approximately 12' high and more than 40' long when the oxen, horses or mules are placed in their hitches. We’re in Omaha ourselves next week for the #AmericanSolarChallenge on the Oregon National Historic Trail which begins Saturday, July 14th at the @LewisandClarkNHT headquarters at Lewis and Clark Landing. You’ll have a chance to see the 20+ solar cars designed, built and piloted by university students on Friday, July 13th from 3:00-7:00 pm, before they head of on their 9-day cross-country journey. #ASC2018 #AmericanSolarPhotoChallenge #FindYourTrail #FindYourPark #EncuentratuParque #Trails50 #EncuentraTuSendero #OregonTrail
Never forget who stood before you.... REPOST: @anzatrailnps On July 4, 1776 while thirteen colonies on the east coast declared independence from England, Spain was expanding it's empire to the San Francisco Bay. Although the Presidio of San Francisco operated under many flags and cultures within the past 200 years, the ground it stands on was inhabited by many for thousands. As we commemorate Independence Day, we do so with Many along side us.

What do historic trails mean to you? 50 years ago, Congress decided that the trails our ancestors traveled were important enough to understand and protect. Today there 19 designated National Historic Trails, and at least a couple more under consideration. Since you’re following us here, we assume you think there’s something special about these chapters in American history too. Why do historic trails matter to you? #FindYourTrail #FindYourPark #EncuentratuParque #Trails50 #EncuentraTuSendero
Enjoyed some time on the Ouachita National Recreational Trail with my family and Doc Cavanaugh. Over the past two year Doc has become a mentor to me. His knowledge of trail stewardship, building trails and trail communities is invaluable. I alway enjoy our time on trail together and to have my family join us was an added bonus. The OT is a 213 mile trail that meanders through the Ouachita mountains. It is on my bucket list of through hikes. #hiking #optoutside #ouachitanationalforest #ouachitatrail #trails50 #trailmentor #foreststewardship #findyourtrail #hikearkansas #kidsinnature #familiesonfoot

"I should compare the (South) pass to the ascent of the capitol hill from the avenue at Washington." - John Fremont, 1843, describing the ease of using South Pass to cross the Rocky Mountains. In the spring of 1843, a wagon train of nearly 1,000 people organized at Independence, Missouri with plans to reach Oregon Country. Crucial to the success of this “Great Migration” was the use of South Pass, a 12-mile wide valley that was virtually the only place between the plains and Oregon where wagons could cross the Rocky Mountains. Starting July 13th, an expedition of solar-powered cars designed and built by university students from all over the world will follow nearly the same route as those pioneers 175 years ago as part of the #AmericanSolarChallenge on the #OregonTrail . We’re looking forward to being part of that 9-day trek from Omaha to Bend. #ASC2018 #Trails50 @MidwestNPS #FindYourPark #FindYourTrail @UMSolarCarTeam @UKSolarCar @MIT_Solar_Car @BerkeleyCalSol @PrisumSolarCar @WestSydSolarTeam @UWMidSun @UMnsvp @SolarMiner @GTSolarRacing @NJITSolarCar @PolyTechSolar @WesternSunstang @WolfPackSolar @USCSolarCar @AppStateSVT
Prospect Hill -- A high hill beyond Willow Spring campground that offered emigrants a fine view, or “prospect” of the surrounding country. Pictured here is a rider of the National Pony Express Association during a re-enactment at Prospect Hill (photo 1 by BLMer Bob Wick). The association also joined the June 30 NHTIC trail trek for a mochilla exchange at the site of the former Pony Express station at Willow Springs (photo 2 by BLMer Emmet Pruss). . . . #findyourway #findyourtrail #trails50 #thatswy #nhtic #livinghistory -  Learn more at blm.gov/nhtic
Avenue of Rocks -- This unique geographic feature, often called “Devil’s Backbone” was difficult for wagons to cross. It was also the scene of an emigrant trail-burial re-enactment during the National Historic Trails Interpretive Center’s 50th anniversary trail trek.

#Repost @orangeblazepodcast with @get_repost ・・・ When we were in Florida a few weeks ago we made a point to stop at the Florida Trail crossing on CR 314 just west of Salt Springs. It was drizzly that day and we weren’t intent on doing any major hiking but we did want to introduce our son to the trail and have a short traipse by some orange blazes. . We parked on the north side of the road and entered the forest along the trail and I think we all easily could have just put a few miles in. Our son met a sapling longleaf, posed with some orange blazes, and we all were mesmerized at watching red-cockaded woodpeckers up in the pine trees. Maybe the next time we are in the state we will put more miles in and camp along the trail...but it was a good taste and memory reminder for us. .

"Father's home in Nauvoo was generally overrun with visitors. There was scarcely a Sunday in ordinary weather that the house and yard were not crowded--the yard with teams and the house with callers" (Joseph Smith III) Joseph and Emma Smith moved to this log house in Illinois on the eastern bank of the Mississippi River after Joseph escaped from Missouri in 1839 to reunite with other members of their church. The small town, originally called Commerce, was renamed Nauvoo by Smith. The Smith Homestead served as church headquarters for about two years. In 1843, Smith and his family moved across the street to a much larger where he lived until his death in 1844. #MormonPioneerTrail #MormonPioneerNationalHistoricTrail #nauvoo #JosephSmith #Trails50 #FindYourTrail #FindYourPark
