Today we would like to offer a Happy 4th Of July to all of our readers. This is the day that the United States declared their independence from the British Empire 241 years ago. It was a long and difficult process to establish this new country, when you realize that the constitution wasn’t ratified until 1788. And here you thought the government today moves slow.
So, with that in mind, it is a wonderful thing to consider that we have successfully enjoyed this land for all that time. We now have more hiking trails than there ever has been in our history. In my area, the North Country National Scenic Trail continues to expand and is continually improved as time goes on. We also have ample national and state parks and refuges that we can visit to hike on those trails at our convenience.
So, I ask that all of you take the time to enjoy this day and do it safely!!
