MOG [Manufacturers of Outdoor Gear] Sale & Outdoor Fest is an outdoor community sale, festival and benefit event founded in 2004 by Jen Taylor, owner/founder of Mountain Sprouts. Gear was flying out of booths fast and furiously on Main St. in Grand Junction, CO this past Saturday. This event is not only a super venue for gear-heads to purchase inexpensive products, but it is also an opportunity to chat with many non-profit organizations who celebrate life in the outdoors. The day got off to a rainy start, but the sun came out later in the afternoon, just in time for the Telluride Mountain Filmfest to begin. Following the adventure films, Loki sponsored a night of local, live music. The event was a blast and Leave No Trace looks forward to returning next year and continue to provide outreach to western Colorado. A special thanks goes out to Jen Taylor for all her hard work in setting up such a MOG-tastic day!
Safe travels...Kate and Tracy
