We’ve been trekking through another beautiful national forest, so forgive us for the lack of updates these past few days. Yesterday we got our first taste of rain in weeks, which was incredibly refreshing. There’s no better smell than fresh rain on pavement!
As we walk we see all kinds of people enjoying our country’s national parks. Folks of all ages, from children to senior citizens, come out here to enjoy the great outdoors. Politics have no place in nature, and we’ve met both conservatives and liberals who agree on the importance of the great outdoors. People drive out from all over the place in their RVs, motorcycles, and minivans to get lost in nature. Though there may be no internet out here, there’s a plethora of activities to suit everyone from hiking to birding to swimming. And despite our differences, people from all walks of life can come together to share and enjoy all that our national forests have to offer.
These lands are here for everyone to enjoy, regardless of where they’re from or what they believe. We invite people down in Arizona to come up north to see the national forests of our state, and we can’t wait to see the national forests of Arizona.
It’s hard to even imagine these pristine areas being destroyed forever, but that could happen at Oak Flat if we don’t pull together and fight to protect this precious natural area. Please remember to call your representative and tell them you want them to supportive Save Oak Flat Act, which you can read here. Let’s make sure that our national forests are protected for generations to come.
PS sorry but no photos today, the wifi I am using is too weak to upload photos
