Bigfoot on the Iron Goat Trail?

Last night, Team West spent a lovely evening with folks that were part of a volunteer vacation for the American Hiking Society.  This year marked the thirteenth consecutive year of this event taking place on the Iron Goat Trail, approximately 80 miles outside of Seattle.  During the awareness workshop, one of our favorite PEAK games-How Long Does It Last?, was the avenue for a lively discussion on the importance of disposing of waste properly and recycling.  We applaud the trail crew that is taking time out of their busy schedules to volunteer to help keep the Iron Goat Trail of the Cascades as beautiful as ever!
On the ride up to our workshop, we were shocked to run into a friend.  We were awestruck as we cruised down Stevens Pass Highway and out of nowhere, there he was.  It was Bigfoot himself!  He was just finishing up a day on the slopes and let us know that he was getting excited for the upcoming Outdoor Retailer show in Salt Lake City.  He hadn't begun packing yet, but he assured us that he would be there.  He even offered to help us give gear away at the Leave No Trace booth.  The big guy is so thoughtful.  He is looking forward to the event, but if you are not planning on attending OR, he wanted us to remind everyone to take his challenge.  It takes less than 2 minutes and you could win some sweet gear from our partners. Sound good? CLICK HERE to participate.
