The craggy outline of the San Rafael Swell marked the northernmost point of the Old Spanish Trail. From 1829 through the mid-1840s, New Mexican traders transported Locally made woolen goods to southern California in exchange for mules and horses. The long and arduous route drove north to avoid the Grand and Glen Canyons of the Colorado River. Once the two rivers were crossed in southern Utah, far above the impassible canyons, the traders passed through San Rafael Swell before pointing their caravans south and west. #OldSpanishTrail #GreenRiver #nationalhistorictrail #FindYourTrail #FindYourPark #Trails50

“Below, thousands of feet below, were seen the water of this beautiful river winding there tranquil course & gleaming like a thread of silver in the rays of the setting sun. The stream seemed as calm and gentle, as if its way was through a meadow, instead of rugged canyons. After reaching the plain, the course of the stream is marked by a line of green timber, which gave rise to its name among the early trappers 'Boisse' or the 'Wooded River'.” --Winfield Ebey in August 1864 standing atop Bonneville Point peering down into the Boise Valley and the first groves of trees travelers on the Oregon Trail had seen in hundreds of miles.

Throwing it WAY back to our very first road trip with our son - 2011 - he was 15mos 👶🏻. Working our way down part of the Bright Angel trail with our trusty @ergobaby pack!! It was still pretty icy in March and I was nervous as a first time mom, but the view was SPECTACULAR!! We had such a fabulous time - it hooked us and it began our annual national park voyage which BOTH kids now really look forward to ☺️ . •What started your passion for travel? . . . #parkseekers

Picture 12/50 celebrating the 50th anniversary of the National Scenic Trails Act: Odd Spots: Not every step is a mountain top, sometimes you have to cross desert valleys that stretch for miles without water. This one is different though, it has water, you can hear it as you walk, enough for a city, but every drop is stuck in a giant metal tube that drains the riches of the Sierra snowmelt to satiate the thirst of Los Angeles, a city built where no city should be. I think the trail has been relocated now. It no longer follows the aquaduct across the Mojave, but I don't regret the walk across. It taught me what it is to feel my lips cracking from the heat and my tongue drying in my mouth as enough water for millions flowed by, just out of reach. #pct #pacificcresttrail #trails50 #aquaduct

The “Eye of God” on the ceiling of the convento in Mission Concepción in San Antonio, Texas is the most famous of many Spanish colonial era frescoes at the Mission. Look closely and you’ll see an elaborate mustache on the face in the sunburst leading some to believe it to be a mestizo – an individual of mixed American Indian and Spanish heritage – that would be familiar to local parishioners. @missionsnps #worldheritage #unescoworldheritage #missionconcepcion #elcaminorealdelostejas #elcaminoreal #spanishmission #fresco #findyourtrail #findyourpark #trails50
November is Native American Heritage Month Celebrating the 50th anniversary of National Trails System, the National Historic Trails Interpretive Center in Casper partnered with the US Forest Service to promote the Nez Perce National Historic Trail.

“We, the great mass of the people think only of the love we have to our land for..we do love the land where were brought up.

Today, with many others, we celebrated the 50th birthday of North Cascades National Park. Conservation Northwest had the opportunity to help sponsor and attend this inspiring event. From poetry to music, art to storytelling and an overall exchange of perspectives on nature, it was an incredible experience to feel the many ways the North Cascades has touched people. Topics on history, accessibility, representation, culture and ecology encapsulated the importance of preserving wild places so that generations to come can experience the same connections felt throughout history. To draw back on a proverb that kicked off the evening, "We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children." • • • • • • Thank you @npcapics for organizing the event, @elcentrodelaraza for creating an incredible space, the presenters and all other sponsors at the celebration!

Picture 10/50 celebrating the 50th anniversary of the National Scenic Trails Act: Part of the Wild: Sometimes we forget that we don't come with claws or legs fast enough to keep us safe, we don't have sharp teeth or armored skin. We don't remember that our only edge was between our ears, that banding together was the only thing that kept us safe. But the trail reminds you and when it does you feel all those old senses emerge, feeble and weak, trying to scrape off civilization's dust, because you're alone in the wild where bigger things than you roam free. #trails50 #cdt #continentaldividetrail #hiking #backpacking #evolution #wilderness

In 1857, Gerat and Sophia Hollenberg established a way station on the Oregon-California Trail, and from 1860 to 1861 they operated a Pony Express home station where riders and horses were switched out. The station later served as a station for the Butterfield Overland Mail. Today, the Hollenberg Station still stands on its original foundations.

It's all there, the kitchen, the living room, the bedroom, wrapped up in stuff sacks and shoved in a backpack. Sometimes your bedroom has roots running across it that make your back sore in the morning, sometimes the lounge has a nice rock to sit on as you eat dinner, sometimes you have running water, sometimes you only have what's left in your bottle, and sometimes the kitchen has a view like this one from the high Sierras along the Pacific Crest Trail where the entire world stretched out below you and you feel like the last and luckiest person left on Earth. #pct #trails50 #sierranevada #hikertrash #nationalscenictrail

In the aftermath of the 1680 Pueblo Revolt, Spanish refugees and a number of Piro, Tano, and Jemez Indians who fled south with the Spaniards, established new villages on the Rio Grande near present day El Paso. There they founded a new mission community, Socorro del Sur, erecting their first mission church 1691. That first mission church, and another that followed it, were both destroyed by floods. In 1843, the mission church was rebuilt one more time incorporating 17th century Spanish Colonial architectural traditions. Fully restored in the early 2000s, which required the construction of 22,000 adobes to stabilize the walls, the Socorro Mission continues to serve as the hub of a thriving urban community and to minister to residents along the 400 hundred year old El Camino Real de Tierra Adentro. https://www.nps.gov/nr/travel/el_camino_real_de_tierra_adentro/Socorro_Mission.html #ElCaminoReal #ElCaminoRealDeTierraAdentro #ElPaso #ElPasoHistory #missionchurch #SpanishMissions #TexasHistory #FindYourTrail #FindYourPark #Trails50 #nationalhistorictrail #SocorroMission
Two months ago today on the #AT I found these little coral fungi in New Jersey. I love how bright and beautiful they are, all nestled up against the dark-green of the moss. I heard so much about the AT being one long boring ‘green tunnel;’ nothing in sights compared to the grand epic vistas of the PCT, so I approached it as an opportunity to enjoy the beauty of nature on a more macro scale. As a result, no boredom, no ‘Virginia Blues,’ nothing but marvel at all of the smaller-scale joys Pachamama offers if you choose to see. On a ‘real-world’ level, this is no different than enjoying and being grateful for the ‘small’ successes and wins of life.. not everything has to be an in-your-face HD mega-event to be amazing. Beauty and glory are everywhere, sometimes even at a whopping 1-2” in stature. 💖 #thruhiking #traillife #NewJersey #AppalachianTrail #FindYourTrail #NST50 #Trails50 supportpubliclands.com
Standing in dramatic isolation is the iconic Painted Desert Trading Post near Holbrook, AZ. Abandoned for nearly 60 years, the trading post’s remarkable durability is due to the skill of its builder, Dotch Windsor, and to the arid Arizona climate. Time has caught up with the building however, and without immediate action the building is in danger of total collapse. The site has received a 2018 cost-share grant from the National Park Service’s Route 66 Corridor Preservation Program. Grant funds to help rescue the threatened building by stabilizing the walls, foundation, and roof. The intent is not to rehabilitate or return the trading post to like-new condition. Instead, its current authentic condition will be retained, achieving the goal of both preserving and commemorating the rich and storied history of trading post history along the Mother Road. #Route66 @NatlParkService #FindYourTrail #FindYourPark #ArizonaHighways #ArizonaHistory #PaintedDesert #Holbrook #Trails50 https://ncptt.nps.gov/rt66/2018-cost-share-grants-announced/

Picture 8/50 celebrating the 50th anniversary of the National Scenic Trails Act: Storms Come: You can't avoid storms on the long trails. You can get lucky sometimes, watch them past in the distance, but one day they will find you. You are out too many days with too far to go to miss them forever. In the end, you must take them as they come, respect their power, enjoy the reminder that you are small. This is from a snowstorm in the San Juan Mountains of southern Colorado. I found an old mining shack just off the divide, mostly broken down, just a few boards still clinging to the roof and wall, but enough to break the wind a bit and warm my hands in my jacket. Every storm passes eventually and the sun is sweeter for it. Good luck to my friends and family in Tallahassee. Love you all and thinking of you tonight. #trails50 #continentaldividetrail #cdt #hikertrash
People LIVED down there! 👆Last March we hit the road for our annual road trip. Our first planned stop was in Flagstaff, AZ to sleep on our way to Monument Valley. Low and behold there are LOTS of National Monuments to explore!! • Walnut Canyon was incredibly eye opening 👀 We explored this enormous canyon and came to understand how Native Americans built their cliff dwellings for their families and communities. We also learned how they climbed down to the bottom of the canyon to retrieve water and then up to the top to hunt - it’s SO steep 😱 . . . #parkseekers

Episodes 7A & 7B are now available! Actually they were live on Friday evening but I hadn’t had time for a proper posting until now! . I sat down with my husband Chris to talk to him about our own thru-hike of the FT in 2011. I split the episode into two because we ran long and I figured it would be easier to listen to in separate chunks. Also, there’s some kid noise in the background which is what happens when both parents are podcasting! I did my best to edit most of it out. . I hope you enjoy the episode! I would eventually like someone else to completely interview us instead of me trying to guide the conversation and to have questions asked that we may not have thought about. .

Picture 6/50 celebrating the 50th anniversary of the National Scenic Trails Act: Moving Across the Land: Along the northern half of the Pacific Crest Trail you travel along a line of volcanoes stretching north: Lassen, Shasta, Crater Lake, Three Sisters, Jefferson, Hood, Adams, and Rainier. From each you can look back to see where you came from and look forward to see where you are going. You measure progress by transforming the smallest hint of a mountain on the horizon into a giant standing over you days later. Then you watch it fade away. That feeling of forward movement is addictive. Life isn't so easy to gauge. This picture is from the top of Old Snowy, sunset or sunrise, looking off at Rainier in the distance. #trails50 #pacificcresttrail #thruhiking #hikertrash

Plant Music Breathwork. What is that? Plant Music Breathwork is different from other Breathwork classes in that it is accompanied by music generated by plants. Plants are living beings just like us, but much more sensitive. Through Plant Music, we monitor data harvested from subtle fluctuations of plant biorhythms and translate them into sound. These fluctuations are, in part, a result of a plant’s response to its environment - both in realms humans perceive and those that only a plant can sense. Through Plant Music, we experience a harmonious sonic environment that is not only relaxing, but may also respond to the change in energy of a room due to our relaxed state. This becomes very useful in exercises related to tuning into one’s feelings and intuition. Through the practice of Pranayama, we fill our emotional centers with breath, then purify them through our hearts and release that which needs to be let go - allowing more space for our own unique vibrations to be expressed.⠀ .⠀ Join Joe Patitucci of @midisprout & @datagrdn on Mondays @ 6:00pm for this 90 minute magical journey 🌿✨ sign up on our website (link in bio), app, @classpass or just drop in ✨ #repost @natureofnow @nationalparkservice .⠀ .⠀ #findyourway #findyourtrail #trails50 #midisprout #plantmusic #crystalhealing #amethyst #citrine #soundbath #mysticjourney #mysticjourneyyoga #highvibes #highvibesatmystic #venicebeachca #youarethelight #soundhealing #resonance #akashicrecords #channeling #source #holistichealing #reikihealing #transformer #mandalalove #mandalaart #movementculture #onebreathatatime #mondaymantra

Last week was all about Arizona Trail stewardship. This week it was all about hiking it! We participated in the ‘Arizona Trail in a Day’ festivities and hiked section 33 near Picketpost! Groups from all around the state hiked, mountain biked, or rode their horses on all 800 miles of the Arizona Trail today. Best parts? We got to camp the night before, enjoy the sunrise, and then hike in the cooler weather due to the recent rain.
One more for the AZT in a day.
