The word "Salado" describes the prehistoric cultural group living in Tonto Basin between 1250 CE and 1450 CE (source: @tontonps official website) #tonto #nativeland #arizona #saguaro

I definitely would have laughed at you. .

I did not grow up hiking. Sure, I went on a few short hikes during summer visits to Colorado. However, I only started hiking when I moved to Arizona, less than 3 years ago.

At first, it was just something fun to do for exercise. But I quickly realized that something happens when I am immersed in nature. There is a certain peace that wraps around me. I feel tiny, miniscule, within this big, mammoth universe of ours.

And yet, I also see how everything has a place, a purpose. And that transcends to me and to you as well. Not to mention, seeing where your legs can carry you is nothing short of empowering.

I would have outright laughed if three years ago you told me I'd hike across the Grand Canyon, solo hike in Grizzly territory throughout Glacier NP, hike 15 miles in search of a swingset I saw on Instagram (check out my latest story) or solo backpack 20 miles RT just to sleep in a hammock in the middle of an apple orchard, buried deep in the mountains. Heck, I would have laughed if you said I'd regularly hike Camelback - a Phoenix favorite I was initially to scared to complete, beyond the helipad.

And as I've said plenty of times, life has a way of surprising us. And in that surprise, it has been comforting to have nature as a teacher - showing me that we all have a place, a purpose.

If you are feeling lost, buried in the busyness of life, trying to find your purpose, need to move forward, etc. You might just be surprised what can become clear with a little quiet time, when you are atop a summit, looking out over the earth, with the wind whispering in your ear.
.

So, I have two questions for you tonight, on #nationaltakeahikeday . If you are a hiker - what got you into it? And if you are not, what would encourage you to try hiking? .

#TeddyRoosevelt set aside 150 national forests, 51 federal bird reservations, 5 national parks, and 18 national monuments, amounting to 230 million acres of public lands for the use of every American citizen and tourists near and far (RSVLTS, 2019).⁣

Royal Robbins and his wife Liz were iconic Sierra Nevada rock climbers during the 1960s. They belonged to a scrappy band of modern climber/philosophers who coined and embraced the term “clean climbing”: a set of practices and techniques that enabled them to climb big walls with little or no damage to the rock, a literal representation of their lived ethos of deep respect for the natural world. ⁣
⁣
We are grateful for the work of Teddy Roosevelt for preserving our wild for us to explore today, and for Royal, who forged the new outdoor ethic mentioned above in the late 1960s, giving birth to a technical foundation that is still in use in the American climbing community today.

As part of our November adventure, we’ve visited a couple more NPS sites the last few days. Our first stop was Camp Nelson NM. Originally a Union supply compound during the Civil War, it became the largest African American training and recruitment site for the war. The “White House” is the only remaining original structure.

Day 2 took us to the “Kentucky Days” of Abraham Lincoln. The “Boyhood” unit at Knob Creek is considered his first memories as a young boy. An original 1861  neighboring cabin now sits on this site, along with a tavern built for tourists later on. •

The Abraham Lincoln Birthplace NHP is one of the more in-depth, non-park units we’ve visited. This memorial to the President was actually built 11 years before the memorial in DC. There are 56 stairs leading to the memorial, representing the 56 years of his life. The enclosed cabin is on the site of his birth, but is not the original. It’s a representation of what life was like back then.

It’s always amazing how much we learn at these smaller units. Mammoth Cave National Park up next!
