Most people would agree that spending a week at Lake Tahoe is a pretty great vacation, but it takes a special type of person to spend a week building trails at Lake Tahoe and still think it's a pretty great vacation.
Last week we met up with staff and volunteers from American Hiking Society near Truckee, California. During our morning presentation, we worked with seasoned staff and volunteers as we discussed programs offered by Leave No Trace. Later that day, we were able to meet up with a brand new crew from AHS's Volunteer Vacation program as they prepared to spend the week building trails in the area. We had a great time and were awed by all the work that these folks accomplish while on vacation! Nice work and hope to see you all again in the future. Happy hiking...you've certainly earned it!
