    • Good stuff Kirk, couldn’t agree more. The trails are not parks or urban sidewalks, and phones aren’t our automatic saviors. I do think there are plenty of folks around here who can sprain an ankle and be able to get themselves out without a helicopter crew and a bunch of internet attention. They’re usually easy to spot on the trails, as are the ones who can’t deal.

  1. Ouch! I hope it’s not too bad. That’s a tricky spot up there. Glad to see so many young people out there though. My kids have been up there with buddies a lot this summer. Get outdoors and have fun, but be smart and safe!
