Happy 50th Birthday to Earth Day! We have this fantastic day to thank for so many of the laws in place to protect our natural and wild places and species. Make a few minutes in your day to make an impact however you can, whether its use less electricity, or water, or food, planting, cleaning up a trail or park or your backyard or even just spreading the word to others. Together we can make an impact. The planet needs more than ever!
While my contributions today don’t include a hike, here’s one I did a week ago in the New Haven, Connecticut area. Curious about the name and history? Watch the video. It’s in the beginning so don’t worry you don’t have to watch all 45 minutes. But hopefully you will enjoy more of it than that. I did. This does put me over my 200 miles of Connecticut blue-blazed trails, and 1,300 total miles since I started tracking my hikes in late 2013. So that’s kinda neat. I hope to be on a trail again later this week. Thanks in advance for coming along on some of the walk. The video covers it all, go check it out here! There’s a few spots where the wind makes it a little harder to hear, but maybe only 2 minutes of all of it, so don’t let that scare you off! If the 45-minute length does, well then I understand!
