Mountain Sports Festival

The Blue Ridge Mountains set the back drop for the Asheville Mountain Sports Festival this weekend at Cairrer Park in West Asheville. The Mountain Sports Festival showcases the diverse lifestyles present in the region. Whether you’re a mountain biker or a mountain boarder, a climber or a caver, the mountain sports festival has a little something for everyone. The festivities started on Friday afternoon with a variety of music, food, and friendly sport-related competitions.
While at the Mountain Sports Festival we had the good fortune to run into a past Traveling Trainer Team, Amy and Dusty Allison. Amy and Dusty are currently working for one of Leave No Trace’s Master Educator course providers, Landmark Learning. When not running Master Educator courses and helping out in Landmark’s office, Amy and Dusty are out enjoying their backyard the Great Smokeys.  Thanks Amy and Dusty for hanging out and playing the Leave No Trace Wheel of Fortune with us.
Next we’re off to Madison Wisconsin for an Awareness Workshop with the Ice Age Trails Association.

Happy Trails, 

Topher and Alexis
